A free art course for teens

During this free four-week introductory printmaking course, teens (ages 13–17) look at the history of printmaking and get hands-on experience with three different methods: screen printing, intaglio, linocut and their experimental combination.
Participants end the course with a small body of work and the skills to continue their printmaking practice at home!
