Note:   No class on May 9th 

Time:  4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. 

Location: Washington Printmakers Gallery,
                1675 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest Washington, DC 20007 

Class Description:

Printmaking is magic! Well, kind of - sometimes it can feel like magic when you have the ability to take your original drawings and designs and reproduce them in infinite variations!

This course is designed as an entry point into the fun and versatile world of printmaking beyond what is typically offered in school curriculum. Pre-teen and teen students will gain familiarity and experience with methods of relief and intaglio printmaking and learn how to print on a press.

Print mediums will include monotype, drypoint, collograph, linocut, and mixed media. In addition to technical skills, students will develop their design sensibilities about what types of compositions and mark making work best with each print medium.

We will look at the work of historical and contemporary printmakers in each print medium we explore, and students will be supported in figuring out how to use each medium to best convey their own thematic interests. 

10 to 15 year old *age exceptions with instructor permission*

Bio: 

Etai Rogers-Fett is a local printmaker and arts-educator, with over ten years of teaching experience in youth and adult arts education. Etai is a current printshop artistic associate at Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center in Hyattsville and a teaching artist at Create Arts Center in Silver Spring. In his etchings, Etai draws inspiration from Jewish craft traditions of papercutting, manuscript illumination, and calligraphy to create compositions that blend decorative and narrative imagery and explore the expressive potential of Hebrew and Yiddish typography. Etai plays with the genres of Jewish book arts in order to think about how we tell and transmit stories, often weaving together archival research, folktales, oral histories, and speculative imagining.
