Instructor: Joan Colbert
Start this four-week printmaking class with an idea and finish with a small series of relief prints. Along the way you will design, transfer, cut, ink and enjoy the delight of pulling a print that you created. This class introduces relief print basics using traditional tools and linoleum, and invites the occasional departure into alternative materials and methods.
Tools and supplies will be provided by the instructor.
