A 12 week experience with talented international painter and printmaker Gustavo Mora. Registration will be limited to 10 students (Mission District students will have preference).

This workshop will be held in the historical Mission Grafica Printmaking Studio on the 4th floor of MCCLA. Students will have a rare chance of working in the studio with international painter and printmaker, Gustavo Mora. Because of the progression of lessons within this specialized class make-up classes will not be possible. Students and parents will be required to sign a commitment to attend all 12 classes after which a printmaking certificate will be issued. Students who complete all 12 classes will be offered time in Mission Grafica under the supervision of studio manager Marsha Shaw.
