Explore a new graphic medium with relief printmaking! This three-session workshop will provide an introduction to linoleum printmaking. Students will learn to develop and cut their images, and print their blocks on an etching press. The final session will have students printing a small series of their images. Students will be printing with water-based inks on a variety of quality printmaking papers.
