This four-week introductory printmaking course will explore a brief history of linocut, as well as examples from contemporary and master artists, as we work with linoleum to create simple and detailed mirror-image prints using non-toxic, water-soluble printing inks. A small printmaking press will be available for printing. Students will also learn hand press methods, which can easily be accomplished at home once the class has ended.
