Printmaking for Creative Collage

creative collage printmaking susan porter

Learn a variety of experimental hand-printmaking techniques, then turn the results into a series of collages for exhibition pieces, greeting cards, gifts or use in books and collage. First use wood blocks, linocuts, monotypes, gelatin plates, stencils, stamps and found materials to make a series of water-based prints in all sizes. Create multiple variations using wet and dry media and different types and weights of paper. Then combine what you’ve made in a series of imaginative collage activities that move your image-making to a new level. This class meets at the Eliot School Annex, 253 Amory St., Jamaica Plain. Limit 8 students
