Exploring Linocut Printmaking and Monotype
Date: April 30
Time: 10 am – 3pm (one-hour lunch break)
Registration Deadline: April 27
This class is designed to explore relief printmaking AND monotype. Students learn how to use linoleum, linocut tools, experiment with mark-making, carve, roll ink, and print by hand. Using color or black and white ink, students will discover how to create a blend roll, apply stencils and draw into the ink. The linocut will be printed on top of the monotype background. This combination of relief and monotype printmaking results in amazing, experimental one-of-a-kind prints!
