CLASSES AT THE MEC STUDIO

Friday, March 22nd from 6:30 - 9:00 pm

Linocut Printmaking: 

In this class you'll learn how to compose an appealing image (I like to start with self-portraits), transfer that image onto a block, carve the block and ink and print the block.  This is a form of printmaking that does not require a press, so once you've done this class you'll have the know-how to do this at home.  Instruction includes detailed demonstrations of step-by-step processes, safety tips with the required tools, on the spot problem solving each step of the way and general information about Fine Art Printmaking techniques, framing suggestions and vendors for materials.  You also get one-on one consultation with me throughout the making of your project and group discussions and very constructive critiques about each other's art. 


Cost: $400/per person (SIGN UP LINKS ARE IN PROGRESS. TO HOLD A SPOT IN THIS VERY SMALL CLASS (6 STUDENTS TOTAL) PLEASE EMAIL ME AT: meppcarter@me.com and let me know you want to sign up.  You will be enrolled in the order of your email dates.
