ID : 8609   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic

Linoleum block prints can be bold and dramatic, and adding color can make them sing!  In this class we’ll learn how to make dynamic prints using multiple linoleum blocks and layering two or three different colors of ink. Among the topics discussed and practiced will be how to plan your multi-color print, strategies for carving, registering (lining up) layers of color, and how different colors interact. This class will provide lots of hands-on time and individual attention as you learn which techniques work for you. Be ready to experiment and be playful!

Students will go home with  at least one multi-color block print, and several individual prints of that multi-colored image. They will also have skills and confidence to carve, ink, and print their own colorful block prints at home!

Experience carving linoleum is helpful, but not essential. Students will need to bring one or two sketches or photos to use as the basis for their prints. Please  wear casual clothing that can get dirty, and bring an apron or smock.
