Printmaking can be steeped in arcane processes and cumbersome equipment which can be quite alluring, yet prohibitive. So we’ve decided to dedicate the night to printmaking that is easy, cheap, and satisfying. We’ll have multiple projects set up around the studio and students can move around to different projects as they like. We’ll talk about how these processes can be used for professional projects as well as in a classroom full of energetic young people.
We would like to extend a special invitation to CPS teachers. We are currently evaluating and developing our program for youth in the city, and would like your opinion on what we can do to support and augment what happens in school. We would like to connect with teachers interested in field trips, in-school workshops, and partnering to provide after-school opportunities for their students.
Community workshops are an opportunity to get to meet the artists at Spudnik Press, preview what an upcoming class might be like, be exposed to new processes, and simply learn techniques and tips from professional artists to incorporate into your projects, what ever they may be. Workshops are hands-on, all ages (students under 16 should be accompanied by an adult), and for all experience levels.
The class fee is $10, or pay what you can. Fees are waived for students who are unable to afford this charge to ensure that the Chicago community has access to artistic projects, regardless of income. Registration is required to ensure we have the right amount of materials on hand.
