REGISTRATION is now open!

I am teaching two PRINTMAKING classes this Fall at the Phoenix Center for the Arts:

8 Saturdays
9 AM to 12 PM
September 17 – November 12
Forget linoleum!  Discover new and wonderful relief printmaking surfaces:  Gomuban, Borco Board and Sintra.  They cut easier than traditional lino and each have their charm.  Explore these new materials and expand your mark-making tool box.

6 Mondays
10 AM to 2 PM
September 19 to October 24
Turn those photos into artistic masterpieces!  Learn how take a photo you have taken and turn it into a fine art etching.  You will learn the solarplate process and how to put the artist's "hand" into your image. 

Here is a link to register for my classes.

  1. Hi Wendy I wonder if you would please explain what "borco board " is ??

    1. Yes, Aine - it is also known by the brand name Vyco, a table cover for drawing boards traditionally. It is thin and cream on one side and green on the other. It carves with lino tools but because it is thin, it wants an image with lots of lines and no big open areas. An advantage is is comes in large sizes. You can cut it with a scissors so you can easily make shapes and stencils from it. The last piece I purchased was from Daniel Smith. Here is a link
      It is also available at Dick Blick:
