The University of Maine at Fort Kent will offer a printmaking class during the Summer 2005 Session. The three week course begins June 6 and meets Monday through Friday from 8:30 -11:25 a.m.
The instructor will focus on "Monotypes", which are actually paintings that will be hand printed onto paper. Students make use of black and white as well as color and learn about the use of collage and mix media methods.
Students and community members of the St. John Valley are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
The course is open to all levels of artist who have a love for painting. Demonstrations will be given by the instructor. There is no pre-requisite for the class.
