PAC ART NITE: Printmaking
Friday | March 23rd | 6:30 - 8:30PM

Printmaking is one of the oldest forms of image-making, and involves the transferral of
an inked image from one surface or matrix to another. This workshop provides an
introduction to the world of printmaking for beginners, and will cover monoprinting on
plexiglass and relief printing with the easy-to-carve medium of balsa foam. We will see
examples of prints for inspiration, create our own designs to draw/paint in ink or transfer to blocks for carving by hand. Then the experimenting with various mark-making styles,
colors and papers begins. Each participant will be provided with decorative backgrounds
or cards with envelopes on which to mount finished prints for take-home art pieces. This workshop is perfect for painters, drawers, or sculptors who wish to translate their skills and ideas into printmaking, or simply for those who want to play with these wonderful techniques! Absolutely no experience required.

Let's make it a party! BYO beverage choice and small dish to share. PAC
provides all the supplies needed: cups, plates, napkins and utensils.
You come with an open mind and appetite. At the end of the evening,  
you have had a great time AND you go home with an original masterpiece.
You may even get to know that inner artist that is in all of us!
PAC Studio Fee is $25. RSVP with Gretchen (call/text) (941) 518 - 2109
