I took a class to learn some of the finer details about a Challenge Proof Press in the studio where I volunteer and teach. In the class we went in pretty deep with some of the mechanics I didn’t know about.

At the end of the class, a group of us collaborated on a poster to make for the 50th Anniversary of the Visual Art Center!  It was fun working with a group of people; taking turns printing, loading paper, and laying out type. I was encouraged from the experience to try to teach a group class of my own.

We each set types of classes offered at the Visual Art Center in different typefaces.
