Using a variety of printmaking blocks, from soft-cut plastic to wood and non-toxic, water-based inks, we will examine different approaches to line-work and mark making from graphic and angular to painterly and gestural.
Students/artists will be introduced to image preparation and transfer methods, sharpening and care of tools, carving methods, ink and paper preparation, rolling techniques, printing on an etching press and by hand. Students/artists can also bring their own T-shirts, bags or other cloth items and discover the fun of relief printmaking on fabric.
Prerequisite: one drawing or painting course preferred. Includes ink fee.
