Printmaking At Railyard! Monotype & Intaglio
Taught by Anthony Kirk-Master Printer
The class will first focus on monotype printmaking using Akua inks and water soluble crayons. Participants need not have previous experience.

These can be printed on their own or combined with monotype. We will initially work with an 8×10 inch format so please bring color sketches that size to the first class. The instructor, a master printer, will guide each artist through the plate preparation process and the printing. All printmaking materials used are non-toxic with dishwashing detergent used for clean up at the end of class. The instructor will provide all materials.
