Here's what the class is all about...

This painterly printmaking technique will inspire participants to create colourful and vibrant unique prints. Experiment and “play” with water-washable Akua inks, rollers, brushes, water-soluble crayons, and various print materials, creating artwork utilizing multiple layers on each image. No experience is necessary.
