SPRING 2023 Adult Classes:
These classes meet for two hours, once a week for 6 weeks:

Relief Printing with AJ Aremu: Tuesdays 5:30-7:30 PM starting March 7th
Relief printing (i.e. woodcut, linocut, etc.) is one of the oldest print mediums and among the simplest, technically. Using a brayer or roller, ink is rolled over the surface of the block or plate (typically plywood, linoleum or cintra), the ink adheres only on the raised areas of the block- raised areas are created by physically cutting areas of the block away, creating a shallow “relief”. Paper is placed onto the inked plate and printed via printing press, barren or spoon. This is a studio course focused on the theory and practice of printmaking as an expressive medium.

Intro to Jewelry/Metals with Leslie Grove: Thursdays 5:30-7:30 PM starting March 9th.
This course offers beginner students a 6-week introduction to metalsmithing through basic methods of fabrication including design, sawing, filing, soldering, and finishing. This class is for students with no prior experience on up to the intermediate level, all are welcome. No previous experience is required.  This class may be taken more than once.

Intro to the Potter's Wheel with Amanda Jane CrouseThursdays 5:30-7:30 PM starting March 9th.
