Printmaking with a Life Model Workshop with David Begley and Hanneke Van Ryswyk at the Schoolhouse for Art

This two day workshop is a wonderful opportunity to work direct from a model through printmaking. David will guide you on anatomy, composition, tone and space through monotype printing and Hanneke will instruct you in drypoint etching combined with monotype. Each student will receive tuition specific to their needs. David & Hanneke are enthusiastic facilitators who teach by instruction and encouragement, helping you to develop your skills and your personal way of seeing and making.

All materials will be provided.
