In this summer intensive course, students will learn the technique of traditional fine art relief printmaking. Together, we will design create block prints using traditional relief materials, wood and linoleum. In this studio course, students will have an opportunity to operate a Takach printing press. Students will gain a good understanding of proper ink mixing and also explore alternative inking techniques. In addition to making prints, students will create a technical journal documenting their discoveries and also develop a written artist statement. At the end of the session, students will present and participate in a group critique to investigate and support their accomplishments.
