grow and change after attending this class.  Students will come away
from this class having been exposed to several easy to learn techniques,
and with lots of prints as well.  Topics covered will include multiple
plate printing, drypoint, and chine colle.  Each class will include
technical instruction and dedicated time for printing and developing

the 8 pieces of 11"x15" printmaking paper.  This class can accommodate
any level of printmaking experience.
