Exploring Printmaking

Tuesdays October 1, 8, 15, & 22 from 6:00-8:00PM.

Instructor: Rachel Loyacano Williams

In this Intro to Printmaking course, you will be exploring mono-printing (yields one unique print) and Linoleum Block printing (allows you to create multiple prints from a single carved block). Both methods are easy, fun, and allow for infinite creative possibilities! In this class you will be developing images with color, texture, and pattern through processes such as carving, stenciling, stamping, and drawing. At the end of this class, you will have a stack of beautiful prints to take home or share with friends. 


What is printmaking?

Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a matrix or template onto another surface, most often paper or fabric. A matrix can be made of wood, metal, linoleum or other various materials. The design is created on the matrix by working its flat surface with either tools or chemicals. The matrix is then inked in order to transfer it onto the desired surface.
