Continuing Education at PAFA

Open Academy: Intermediate Relief (PR 253)

with Dan Miller


Mondays, 1:00 - 3:50 p.m. (first class meets on Wednesday, 8/31/2022)

PAFA’s Open Academy provides the opportunity for Continuing Education (CE) and non-matriculated students to enroll in select BFA courses for credit or non-credit.  Open Academy students enrolled in PAFA’s renowned studio arts courses learn technical skills, creative expression, and critical thinking from master artist-teachers while working amongst dedicated full-time students in PAFA's classrooms.

This course will include drawing, cutting and printing techniques through both hand and press experimentation. It will involve close contact with each student to increase visual challenge and to build awareness of relief possibilities such as: reductive printing, wood engraving, multicolor possibilities, the illustration of a text, the carving of text, production of a book, and work in series.

Optional: This course is available for 1.5 undergraduate credits for $1,400. Select credit option when registering.
