ASLD art courses printmaking and book arts

PRINTMAKING

The printmaking program at ASLD is home to many of the most renowned printmakers in Colorado, many of whom make up our printmaking faculty.

All of our printmaking courses take place in our professional-quality printmaking studio, which is fully equipped with 3 printing presses, ink-friendly tabletops, a large drying rack, and smaller tools such as brayers and squeegees.

Students who complete a printing course become eligible to participate in Open Studio in the Print Room, where they can come utilize the space and tools to work independently on projects outside of a course.

BOOK ARTS

Our book arts courses invite students to take their visual art to the next dimension.

Books arts are perfect for artists looking to get more tactile with their work.

Book arts courses often combine multiple disciplines such as writing, drawing, painting, and collage with book arts techniques. Students are invited to use their existing visual art skills to enliven the surfaces of the book objects they create, in addition to gaining skills such as binding and box construction.

Please note that some book arts courses are held offsite at private studios, so be sure to check the location when registering.
