ABOUT THIS CLASS:
This linocut class, for beginners to advanced students, explores the many ways drama and impact can be accomplished through a well thought out composition and effective combinations of blacks, whites and tones and the skillful use of a variety of tools. The student is encouraged to juxtapose contrasting or subtle textures and patterns as well as to consider a light source in achieving an impactful and artistic result. Skills will be honed by learning various cross-hatchings, parallel lines, stippling, textures, fades, and the use of thin-to-thick lines as well as block preparation and printing. Simple and complex images can be equally expressive and beautiful. Suitable for all levels; no experience necessary! Ages 16+
Thursdays, 9 AM–12 Noon
