Spring Study Group — April 15, Wednesday, 12:30 pm.
Have fun practicing the fine art of printmaking!
Janet Schill and Carol Friedle of Expressions Graphics will introduce us to monotype printmaking. We will briefly discuss the artful history of printmaking, and learn a bit about color theory and watercolors. Then we will outline and paint our own designs with water color pencils and paints. The staff will use their fascinating print machine to turn our painted designs into printed works of art. Don’t worry if you don’t think you’re an artist! You can create an abstract design, or copy a (non-copyrighted) image you find online or in a book.
Expressions Graphics is a not-for-profit organization located at 29 Harrison Street, Oak Park. Visit the website to learn more about Expressions Graphics and printmaking: http://expressionsgraphics.org.
Cost: $15 payable at class to Expressions Graphics by check or cash. Additional prints will be $4. Advance registration is requested for preparation of materials. Wear old clothes or a smock.
