Introduction to Printmaking: Building the Matrix

Course No. CEPM 140 00
Cost $375 Register Now
Sessions 8
Dates September 23–November 11 (Wednesday) – 6-9pm

n printmaking, the matrix is the plate, block or other surface that carries the information to create the print. In this course, we will build our matrices by investigating three methods of printmaking. Mono print, intaglio and relief techniques will be taught so that class participants learn the basic aspects of printmaking such as layering, color mixing and overlay of imagery. This course is being offered as a process sampler, allowing students an introductory experience to printmaking, and will also support those students who would like to build upon previous printmaking experiences. Examples of prints from CIA’s archives will be exhibited during class time for observation and discussion.
