Instructor: Rhonda Smith, Professor, Chair, Department of Contemporary Art and Theater, and Coordinator of the Non-toxic Printmaking Program

This workshop offers a chance to explore printmaking tradition, using modern tools and materials. Relief printing using linoleum is a wonderful way to create bold, dramatic images with pattern, texture and line. Create your own linoleum print using your original drawings or design finalized during the first hour of the class. Cut your print, and then experiment with printing to see how changes in color impact the final product. Linocut is one of the most direct and immediate ways to realize a printed work on paper, you will leave the class with multiple images to share.
