Fully Assisted Sessions and Other Options

Fully Assisted Sessions

Nicknamed “Pamper and Production,” private and shared assisted sessions are geared to give you the greatest amount of personal attention and production output. Each full day session is 8 hours of work time plus a lunch break and can be custom made for your particular needs and project. Included are all inks, monotype plates, set up and clean up services, use of tools such as brayers, ink knives, etc. The only supplies you might consider bringing are any personal tools as well as brushes and collage material. You can choose to work as large as my presses can handle and can get involved with Solarplate and/ or ImagOn, digital imagery, as well as mixed media constructions. 8x10 and 12x16 Solarplates as well as 12x16 and 16x20 pre-laminated ImagOn plates are generally in stock for an additional fee. With some advanced notice ImagOn plates can be prepared up to 23"x 36." (In most cases additional fees for materials may apply for Solarplates, ImagOn, digital prints or transparencies, and construction materials.)

As a Master printer and instructor I can offer assistance and education at whatever level you choose. It can be a total production session or some combination of learning techniques and creating finished works. For 3-4 people I reserve the option to hire an assistant/intern to help with the load. All the printing during these private or shared assisted sessions will be done by me and /or my assistant. The prices for assisted sessions are as follows:

          1 person- $600/ day plus paper and tax           
          2 people- $400 each/ day plus paper and tax 
          3 people- $300 each/ day plus paper and tax
          4 people- $250 each/ day plus paper and tax
          5 people- (assisted by special arrangement)

Please contact me if you are interested in available dates or want to discuss a particular project.

Custom-made workshops

Flexibility is the key concept as this option is a way to customize the instruction to fit your and/or your group's particular needs and timeframe. Four people are needed to make it work at the price of $160/day/person (plus paper and tax) and a maximum of 6 participants. This program would be handled as a workshop where the theme (though custom made) would apply to all participants. Here the set up and cleanup, as well as the printing, would be done by the participants. Some topics that may be considered are monotype, chine colle, Solarplate, ImagOn, mixed media construction, viscosity printing, and more. Please look at course descriptions for more information about the many workshops available. This option is perfect for a school group or arts organization but it can work for individuals as well. Ideally these programs should be 3 or more consecutive days.  
(In most cases additional fees for materials may apply for Solarplates, ImagOn, digital prints or transparencies, and construction materials.)

Portfolio Presentation
In most workshops a portfolio presentation featuring my current works on paper is usually included. I often add it as well with the slide lecture. I can present to your group as a feature in itself along with a discussion about the processes involved. This is most suitable for a printmaking organization, a college class where time may be limited, or simply for an intimate gathering of invited art enthusiasts.


If your group is interested in observing certain techniques, use of materials, or my working process in general I will do a working demonstration. This can be for several hours up to a full day. A good example of this occurred at RIT for the Print Club of Rochester in October 2006 and is documented in a slide show.
