In this brand new class students will be introduced to a variety of printmaking techniques including rubber block carving, creating "collagraph" printing plates from textured materials, and developing "trace monotypes". We will explore positive and negative space, texture, designing without mid-tones, safety when carving, and different uses of "multiples". Each class will involve an explanation of new techniques, time to work on creating the different blocks, and of course, making prints.
A $25 materials kit containing all the materials needed for the class will be provided (payable directly to the instructor at the beginning of the class).
