    The structure of this class will be a two-part workshop focused on the basics of linoleum block printmaking. In the first class, we will explore aesthetics and design approaches for linoleum block printmaking, positive and negative space, design transfer, tearing down paper, tool safety, and carving techniques for linoleum blocks. Students will have a week to finish carving their blocks and should be ready to print the following week. The second class will cover rolling ink, registration and hand-burnishing each print. By the end of the course, each student will have an edition of at least four single-color linoleum block prints. The class will provide students with a creative environment and social opportunity to explore this exciting medium. It is highly recommended to have some drawing experience, but all are welcome. Maximum of 8 students.
