ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:
Made famous by Picasso, the Reductive Linocut technique uses a single block, carved and printed in succession, to create a multi-colored image. Although challenging to conceptualize, a reductive linocut print is fun to make and can become another tool in your printmaking/artmaking toolbox. In this 2-day workshop, students will learn the basic techniques of relief printmaking by carving, inking, and printing a single linoleum block to create a multicolored image using the reductive technique. We will also discuss tips for making successful editions including using different paper varieties and registration templates. In addition, students will gain an understanding of general printmaking procedures, graphics studio practices, and safety protocols. Students will be encouraged to share their thoughts about composition, presentation, and other prints and printmakers through informal discussions.
No prior printmaking experience necessary, but a commitment to artistic exploration is required. Ages 16+
