Only a couple of spots left for Printmaking Workshop with Tricia

Art Central is proud to host

Tricia Reichert’s Printmaking Workshop

What is Relief Printmaking? Come find out!

Relief Printmaking Workshop with Tricia Reichert
Saturday, August 25th, 10:30am-4pm

Fee:$75

Relief printing is achieved by rolling ink onto the surface of a carved block. The areas that are carved away will not print, but those shapes of the image that are left will accept the ink and form the final print. The print will be a mirror image of what you see on your printing block! Come and learn how to design, carve and print a block (relief) print. Any subject can be adapted to work for this printmaking process. Bring along your ideas for the subject, or choose from a variety of mine for this project. Carving the design is very easy on this soft rubber block and water-based inks will be used in this workshop.

To enroll, please contact Tricia by email: tricia@portraitsandprints.com.

Fee: $45 

Drew has over 16 years experience as a professional artist and 4 years of teaching art workshops. In this 3-hour acrylic painting workshop, Drew will break down his creative process used to construct his vibrant, energetic abstract paintings.

Explore how to use contrast, shapes and colors to create interesting forms. He will share various techniques in how to use color and brush strokes to create movement, balance and energy. This class is for all skill levels!

We will be working mostly from our imaginations–but, you are welcome to bring your own images for inspiration of shape and color. We will be doing several small warm-up pieces and one larger. Paints, brushes and other materials will be provided. Canvas and additional materials can be purchased at Art Central. You are welcome to BYOB. Come join the fun!
