Looking for a refresher or to hone your technique?
A One on One Tutorial might be right for you!

You can arrange to learn at your own pace from a professional artist right in our studio!  We have instructors available to teach lithography, etching/intaglio, relief, and silkscreen processes. Contact us with your query and we will seek to arrange your private lessons, subject to Studio and instructor availability.

 

Please note - one on one tutorials are not as comprehensive as a workshop and not meant to be an alternative to them.   A/P staff may require a few weeks lead time to make arrangements with potential instructors.
