About This Class

75aa4bde

In this class, we will go over the basic concepts of linocut using animal-based illustration. Linoleum prints fall under the category of relief printmaking--traditionally created by drawing an image onto a sheet of wood and cutting away with a variety of different gouges, any "non-image" areas.

Using many similar traditional techniques you can expect to learn about materials, how to plan images on blocks, proper techniques on carving and finally printing. For printing, we will be printing on pre-cut drawing paper purchased at the local art store. We will be transferring our print using a wooden spoon and a baron. 

This class is for anyone who wants to strengthen their skill sets and stretch their creative muscles.
