[BKARTS] New Printmaking Courses at CBA in March

We at the Center are looking forward to new and exciting printmaking courses
coming up in March:

NEW! Wish You Were Here/ Limited-Edition Postcard Portfolio
Inspired by the notion of travel, we will create a suite of postcard prints
using a wide variety of techniques.  During the first two days there will be
demonstrations and experimentation using pressure printing, pochoir,
collograph, chine colle and wood type on the Vandercook and etching presses.
The two days will be spent creating the edition.  On the last day we will
construct a folder to house the prints.  Upon enrolling students will be
sent a materials list and some text fragments that may serve as a jumping
off point.
March 7 - 11. Mon. - Fri., 10am- 4pm  Lynne Avadenka and Roni Gross $450/

NEW! Wood Engraving
Wood Engraving, developed in the late 18th Century by Thomas Bewick, is
perfectly suited for the illustration of text.  The engraved image, printed
at the same time and on the same equipment as type, harmonizes beautifully
with text and is capable of incredible detail.  It can also stand alone as a
medium for artistic expression.  Learn the basics of the craft, and its
modern adaptations.  Engrave and print an edition on the Center's Vandercook
proof presses.
March 19 & 20, Saturday and Sunday, 10am - 4pm June Paris & Barbara Henry
