The Beauty of Printmaking: Start with Linocut - Intro/Inter
Register Making prints is fun. To watch your work transformed from a drawing to a print is exciting and full of surprises. Beautiful linocuts have been made by Picasso, Chagall, George Braque, and many other great artists as the medium is fast and effective, inexpensive and extremely versatile. One of the great advantages of linocut is being able to make prints at home. The process is not dependent on having access to a printing press. For our class we will have the luxury of a press but we will also cover what is needed to complete prints without one. From choosing a suitable subject and producing a series of prints as the work develops, to proudly settling on the finished product, you will find the process gratifying and inspirational.
