8/ 19/ 18 Intro to Linoleum Block Printing

Instructor: Sammi McLean

Sunday,  August 19th 12 - 5pm

Relief Printing is the oldest form of printmaking. This course is designed to teach students how to "think print" while carving away at a linoleum block, then how to use that block to make multiple prints and how to layer images on top of one another. Students will get a sense of how it feels to work in a communal space surrounded by artists with similar interests. Students will also learn how to use and respect a large fine art press. Students will leave the class with a working knowledge of shop etiquette, linoleum carving, and printing techniques as well as a small portfolio of prints and their own linoleum block. 

This class will certify you to reserve and use our etching press during open studio hours.
