You will work in the well equipped studio with specialist intaglio facilities and develop your personal imagery. Sessions are a combination of structured teaching and informal workshop time, you will be supported with guidance through personal projects, one to one tutorials and feedback to help you develop your artistic strength and interests.
Final prints can be submitted for our end of year Printmaking Exhibition in July when we enjoy a lively Private View evening to celebrate the work created during the year on all our courses.
These classes are aimed at beginners, those who wish to refresh their printmaking skills and those who have a basic experience in any other visual arts discipline.
These courses give an opportunity to build a portfolio of prints and to assist progression to our more advanced printmaking courses.
How much should I study outside class?
It is recommended that you prepare imagery and materials outside the class, so you can use the time in the studio more fully for printing and technical processing. A sketchbook documenting your ideas development, technical notes and research is recommended.
Are any course materials online?
Once you are enrolled on the course you will be introduced to the college’s virtual learning environment with materials and information in support of your studies.
What books and equipment do I need?
You need to bring: a sketchbook and art equipment such as pencils, eraser, a range of brushes, Stanley knife, scissors and apron.
What extra costs are there?
There is a studio fee of £8 each term to the tutor which covers basic materials, except paper and plates which you pay extra for as you use them. All materials are available to buy in the studio.
If you have further questions about the course, the tutor can be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org
