This exciting offer from the Fitzwilliam Museum’s Prints Department will be of interest to all museum staff and volunteers who want to develop their understanding of art works on paper, and learn how to identify different media.
- learn how to tell the difference between different types of drawing media and certain printmaking techniques
- learn how to tell if an image has been printed in colour or has had colour applied by hand
- have the opportunity to discuss their own objects and have questions answered.
By the end of the course participants will be more familiar with printmaking terminology, know what clues to look for to distinguish a print from a drawing, and identify certain printmaking techniques.
If you have questions about a specific object please contact us before the Masterclass.
This is a different course to last year’s “Through the Magnifying Glass: A Beginner’s Guide to Prints”, but there will be some overlap. If you have any questions about the content of this session, please get in touch.
Morning refreshments will be available but lunch is not provided. There is a restaurant on site.
This event is fully booked.
