Printmaking Classes: teens & adults
Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing, normally on paper. Printmaking covers the process of creating prints that have an element of originality, rather than just being a photographic reproduction of a painting. Except in the case of monotyping, the process is capable of producing multiples of a same piece, which is called a print. Each print produced is not considered a "copy" but rather is considered an "original".
