Explore nature through the possibilities of printmaking. We will experiment with monoprints using Styrofoam to engrave and stamping to design and embellish. Participants will explore the blending and mixing of colors, using a brayer, and experiment with the printmaking process through the use of a variety of different techniques. This is a great opportunity to have fun and experiment with the techniques presented. Each participant will have several prints to take away with them as well as their original printing plate that they re-use for future creations.
