  • Private Lessons

    Interested in learning something new? Have you been dreaming about a project all quarantine? Well, our private classes are back! This professional, one-on-one instruction allows for flexible scheduling and a unique lesson catered to your specific area of interest. Further, we’ve implemented cleaning and social distancing protocols to ensure that our studio environment is safe for you and the community. Students will be required to wear a mask at all times.

    Private lessons are available in all mediums, including: Etching, Photoetching, Lithography (stone, plate, and paper), Screenprinting, Relief (woodcut and linoleum), Bookmaking, Collograph, and Monoprint. If you have a different project in mind, feel free to reach out!

  • Small Group Classes

    Getting a small team of students together for a multi-week class is a great alternative to our pre-pandemic group classes. Organized upon request, these courses are a perfect fit for repeat students or individuals who are totally new to us but want to schedule something to get through the fall and winter months. We have a large database of students in every media that we can reach out to when we receive an inquiry to put something together. Students will be required to wear a mask at all times.

    Possible areas of study include: Etching, Photoetching, Lithography (stone, plate, and paper), Screenprinting, Relief (woodcut and linoleum), Bookmaking, Collograph, and Monoprint.

  • Work Sessions

    If you have a basic understanding of printmaking and don’t need how-to instruction (or if you’re a student looking for extra shop time) work sessions are for you! A shop member will be on site to help you find what you need; otherwise, you are expected to work independently. A prior private lesson, group class, or brief portfolio review may be necessary to ensure that you are capable of using the equipment. You will be required to wear a mask at all times.

    Work sessions are available in the following techniques: Etching, Photoetching, Lithography (stone, plate, and paper), Screenprinting, Relief (woodcut and linoleum), Bookmaking, Collograph, and Monoprint.

    Description

    You may sign up for a three-hour ($40) or four-hour ($50) time slot. Work sessions are currently available on a limited, by appointment basis. Email classes@chicagoprintmakers.com to schedule.
