Open studio 12 - 4pm
Spend a week this summer discovering your printmaking potential! Develop varied ways of creating images with woodcut, monotype, and combinations of the two. Layered images will emerge from your carved block. Color composition and texture will be considered as you explore. Combine multiple blocks or work reductively from one; rotate blocks and utilize stencils to hide and reveal layers in your work. We will cover many possibilities. Enjoy working in this age-old elegant craft. NB: Quality tools must be purchased prior to class. Information on this will be sent to enrolled participants. Wood will be available for purchase.
