Are you ready to get messy? We will experiment with printmaking techniques that are sure to make a big impression! Students will learn about the pop art style of Andy Warhol and create a series of their own relief prints. We will also try Gyotaku, a traditional form of Japanese fish printing with real fish (rubber fish forms are also available!).
