Of all the art teachers I have had, you were the best and the most inspiring. You have had the greatest influence on my work, and you continue to instruct and inspire me through Instagram. i also need to tell you that my friend Pam feels the same way about you and she has been doing some really amazing work recently.

Thanks again Suzanne for a wonderful class. I really enjoyed it . . . something about the class really freed me up to do work that I felt good about!

 Printmaking Without a Press: Collage Papers and Fine Art Prints

In this exciting and fun workshop, you'll learn how to make original prints on printmaking paper or collage weight papers, without a press, and with easy soap and water cleanup. Using Golden acrylic paints and other water-based media, several methods, including gelli plate, monotype, collograph, trace monotype, and original unique methods will be presented with clear step-by-step demonstrations. You can combine these methods for unlimited potential, using lighter weight papers for collage and other paper arts, or use heavier weight printmaking paper for finished art prints. Lightweight fabrics and other papers can also be used. Experimenting is encouraged! Demonstrations and individual discussions will help each participant to create work using
their individual aesthetic and visual ideas.
