Printmaking Sampler, Five Tuesdays , 6 – 8 p.m, April 9, 16, 23, 30, and May 7.  This class will introduce students to four basic forms of printmaking including relief, intaglio, monotype, and screen printing.  You will complete a small print in each of these techniques to gain an understanding of each process.  Returning students may choose to work in one or two specific techniques in a larger format to further explore subject matter and technique.  All materials are included except paper which will be discussed at the first class.  Tuition $120 

Introduction to Observational Drawing;   Five Wednesdays, 6 – 8 pm; April 10, 17, 24, and May 1 and 8.        Drawing is a useful and rewarding skill which is dependent on visual cues that anyone with a desire, can learn. We’ll focus on learning to see shapes, sizes, and relationships between parts to capture accurate rendering of objects.   We’ll do a variety of exercises in the sketchbook each week following demos and discussion.  We”ll cover some Idea Generators and ways to practice outside of class to further improve skill.  All materials are included EXCEPT a sketchbook. Please bring a spiral or bound sketchbook (no larger than 9 x 12 and no smaller than  7 x 7) to the first class. Tuition:  $110
