This course is part of our Elective Skills Workshop series. You will be studying alongside students from our pre-degree and degree programmes.

Experiment with a combination of traditional printmaking techniques including simple block-print, etching, collagraph and mono-print to develop a print or series of prints. Printmaking both compliments and brings perspective to other areas of creative practice. Many printmaking techniques involve drawing in its many forms and will bring a new perspective and enjoyment to this fundamental artist’s skill. This course is ideal for artist practitioners working in any medium who would like to gain a perspective of print techniques and re-engage with the drawn mark. 

By the end of the course you will be able to: 

  • Use printmaking tools and equipment correctly and safely. 
  • Create images using experimental combinations of printmaking techniques.
  • Apply graphic mark making, intaglio and block print techniques in the creation of prints. 
  • Create a final print or series of prints, applying printmaking and editioning techniques. 
  • Research, plan and complete a self initiated project

This course is suitable for all levels. Students can move at their own pace depending on their experience, with as much support from the Tutor as they wish.

  • Beginner

    Choose a Beginners course if you are looking for a broad introduction to the medium you are studying. Students spend time learning the very basics of the taught medium, for example, how to mix colours, use different tools, set up an easel. Our Beginner courses are suitable for students with no prior experience, they tend to follow a more structured path than our other courses, ensuring each student receives the guidance they need from the tutor.

  • Beginner +

    Choose a Beginner + course if you are looking to hone your skills, focus on a specific subject area and build your confidence. These courses are suitable for those with some basic skills in and knowledge of the taught medium, but still follow a structured path with guidance from the tutor.

  • Intermediate

    Our Intermediate courses are suitable for students who have considerable prior knowledge of the taught medium or have completed a Beginners/Beginners + course with the Art Academy.

    These courses tend to be less structured and instead are tailored to the classes’ needs and the direction they want to advance in. Choose an Intermediate course if you are looking to improve your skills and have more critical discussions around the work you produce.

  • Advanced

    Choose our Advanced courses if you have considerable knowledge in the taught medium. You are expected to be able to work independently and have critical discussions around your work.

     Our Advanced courses include our Masterclasses.

All attendees must be aged 18 or over.
