ARTFix! Printmaking with Paul Williamson

This class, for high school-aged through adults, will expose students to several types of printmaking, including monoprinting, collagraphy, transfer, and relief, resulting in students producing multiple prints for each fun and creative printmaking type. Open to all skill levels.

Age 15+
Cost: $240, includes most supplies.

Teaching Artist bio: With a Fine Arts degree from Huntingdon College and a Master’s degree in Art Education from the University of Montevallo, Paul Williamson has been teaching art and exhibiting his artwork for nearly three decades.  This award winning instructor loves motivating his students to succeed in their creativity so that they grow as artists.
