Relief Printmaking: LinocutOctober 16, 2014 to November 20, 2014 — 06:00 PM to 09:00 PM Instructor: Rachel Baxter
This six week course is an introduction to fine art relief printmaking techniques and concepts in which each student will create unique and limited edition prints. In linocut printmaking, an ink drawing is made on a linoleum block. The artist cuts away un-inked areas, leaving inked areas raised. Printing ink is applied to the raised surface and a sheet of paper is laid on the block to take an impression by hand or a press. Students will design multiple series of images which can be used as unique holiday cards or personal works of art. Beginners welcome!
