ABOUT THE CLASSES:
Introductory classes at Hirst Printmaking are designed for both beginners with no printmaking experience as well as experienced artists who would like to add new techniques to their own personal toolbox. Each class will provide you with technical information and assistance with discovering and creating your own personal imagery.
Jeff Hirst has been teaching encaustic and printmaking workshops since 2005 and has taught at many venues across the U.S including The International Encaustic Conference, Arrowmont School of the Arts and Vanderbilt University. Hirst is interested in how printmaking and encaustic can be combined and has done extensive research to further this discipline. He developed a process that combines silk screen and encaustic and has shared his research with many people.
Hirst Chicago Studio's has an exciting Visiting Artsists coming in 2017 to teach workshops. See below for details!
