We will also experiment with mono prints and mark making for mixed media pieces. You will learn the basics of each process and will be given the freedom to try new ways to create your own artwork. You will be given guidance and support through each process to further your artistic ability. You will be encouraged to develop your own ideas and produce a portfolio of prints. Do I need any particular skills? This course is suitable for complete beginners and perfect for anyone who would like to gain an insight into basic printmaking techniques.
