Master printer Scip Barnhart will give an interactive demonstration of basic printmaking methods in conjunction with the upcoming exhibition, Jasper Johns: Variations on a Theme. Recently, a group of educators and curators visited his studio at Georgetown University to get  a sense of the techniques and the magic of the printmaking process!

  1. Thanks Brooke, it was a pleasure to have you and the others visit the Georgetown art department’s printmaking studio. I’m there every Friday if anyone wants to see how prints are made.
