What is printmaking? In printmaking, the artist chooses a surface to be a printing plate. The artist prepares the plate by cutting, etching, carving, or drawing a design into the plate. The artist then applies ink or paint to the plate, presses paper onto the plate (by hand or a printing press), and pulls the paper with its transferred image from the plate.The artist can create multiple impressions by re-inking the plate and printing new pieces of paper in the same way. Sharp tools will be used and out of camp work encouraged. While all materials and supplies will be provided, you don't want to wear anything fancy...the inks can and will stain clothing. Lead by Miguel de Agero who has been printmaking since he was eight. Ages 9 to 12 years old
