The beauty of the relief printing process is its simplicity. In the relief medium, it is the nature of the mark/cut that produces the atmosphere and energy within the image. In this class you will learn the basics of linoleum printing; we will use the various presses at the Print Studio, including our Columbian Hand Iron press, to make your prints.
Adequate time will be spent planning your initial design drawing and concept, especially on the important interplay of positive and negative space. We will balance the crucial planning stage with spontaneous explorations in monoprint. This class is geared to beginners, but all are welcome.
This class is designed for adults, but mature teenagers are also welcome. Students must be at least 13 years old; age 15 and above is recommended.
COVID-19 notice: We will follow the recommended guidelines that are in place at the time of the class, for example, staying at least six feet apart, wearing masks, etc.
MATERIALS: A drawing tablet; a grid-lined notebook; black construction paper or Canson Mi-Teintes black paper; pencils, including a white pencil. The print studio has carving tools and a variety of inks; a small linoleum block will be provided. We will discuss all necessary materials in greater detail and a $20 materials fee will be collected at the first meeting.
