Printmaking is a broad category that allows the artist to make multiple images by hand, using a repeated design. In these classes, students will explore the monotype, relief, drypoint, and screen printing processes. Non – toxic materials will be used and students will be able to use a traditional etching press. Students will be using their own designs for projects and will have a lot of fun exploring their own creativity.

Atsuko Hewett was born, raised and educated in Japan. She graduated from Musashino Art University in Japan and worked as a designer, and as a musician playing the organ. My husband and I raised two kids in Seattle and retired here in 2000. After retiring I enjoyed ceramics, and then did printmaking and painting. I like the process of adding shapes and colors on paper or canvas. It’s fun to do any kind of art.
