During this 10-week long course, we will practice several techniques including drawing, transferring, carving, and printing. This class will cover the basics of linoleum block carving, starting small and working up to a more advanced large block by the end. No previous printmaking experience required, but students with experience are also welcome. We will start by learning about the tools and techniques of linoleum carving, testing out different materials, and practicing different styles. We will test prints, learning to ink the blocks, and discovering what works best when designing your piece. Once you learn the process, you can use your creativity to make things like greeting/holiday cards, bookmarks, and prints to decorate the wall.
