Relief Printmaking

Instructor: Laura Richens

prerequisites: there are no prerequisites for this class

This class will explore the medium of relief printmaking, which includes linoleum cuts and woodcuts.  Participants will design their blocks, transfer the drawings to the block, carve the blocks (exploring both white-line and black-line techniques), and print their images.  We will print multiples in order to have a small portfolio exchange within the class.  We will begin with linoleum and advance to wood.  Relief printmaking has been described as the most democratic of all artistic media, and will begin with it in its simplicity, and advance to more intricate possibilities.
