Have you ever wanted to incorporate original art into a greeting card or invitation? Or ever gaze into a Picasso, Matisse or Munch print and wonder how it was done? We’ll focus on relief-printing methods, learning linoleum or woodblock printing and monotype. You will learn how to plan and make prints on a press and by hand rubbing.
We will use water-based inks. No printmaking experience is necessary!
Continuing beginners welcome and encouraged!
