About This Class

Printmaking is transferring an image from a matrix (a plate) to paper. With some techniques you need a printing press to apply enough pressure to transfer the image. In this class we will explore relief printmaking by hand!

We'll walk through the steps of acquiring supplies; developing a strong composition, transferring the design from paper to the linoleum; rolling out ink; and printing the plate on paper using hand pressure.

We'll also learn about being safe with the tools and using water-based inks, so that you can easily print at home.

This is a beginning class; no experience necessary, just a willingness to try! With this basic information and practice students can move onto more complex projects, such as multi-colored printing and printing patterns.

Make art for your soul

Teacher

Hello, I'm Elizabeth. I am an artist and educator with a 20 year background teaching high school and middle school art. I believe in taking risks in the art studio; if not there, then where?

Printmaking is my main medium, but I know a bit about painting, drawing, design and ceramics. I like printmaking because I can use the same plates repeatedly with different results. Not only do I make fine art, I print on fabric and other material to create functional pieces.

I have a BFA in graphic design from Washington University in St Louis and an MFA in printmaking from Ohio University. I see a direct connection between making art and teaching it. Both keeps me on my toes!
