Reduction lino is a form of relief printing that uses one linoleum block to make several different layers, one after the other, transforming the previous layer as you continue to enhance the surface with additional carving. In this four hour class we'll be going through a carving printing pattern in the order from light to dark: Carving light, Printing light, Carving medium, Printing medium, Carving dark, Printing dark. Our process will begin with a three to four color image in marker for reference.
By the end of this workshop you will have a solid foundation of printing knowledge in order to experiment and create your own lino prints for greetings cards, postcards and original prints.
Registration fee includes all necessary materials.
This class meets in Sulfur Studios 2nd floor Annes space and is stair access only.
Printmaking is a personal interest of Paige's because the process involves certain steps, repetition and opportunity to apply texture, a great balance of structure and freedom. These elements of art making do cross over into her lifestyle with loving to ride bikes, swim and make white cheddar sage biscuits. Paige grew up in Tennessee and attended East Tennessee State University where she earned her BS in Art Education then relocated to Washington DC for the past 20 years. In the last five years of living in DC and teaching art, she earned her Masters in Art Education at the Corcoran College of Art and Design. As one of the four DC public school teachers to receive a full scholarship, with gratitude she continues to seek opportunities to share her experience in the studio classroom.
