I am offering Try Me! classes in Solarplate Etching and Relief Printmaking at the Phoenix Center for the Arts, 1202 N. 3rd Avenue, Phoenix. If you know anyone who has never tried printmaking before, one of these 3 hour classes will show them that anyone can make art, and they will walk away with their own handpulled print! The price per class is $49. All materials are provided.

Everyone can print! You will be given instruction, tools and materials needed to create, carve, roll up and print a 4 x 6 inch relief plate. No experience required.
Bring 4 photos from which we will select one to make into a 4” X 4” etching. Photos with high contrast work best (lights, darks and middle values). You will learn to etch with ultraviolet light instead of acid, and print by hand on the etching press. No experience required.
