ONLINE: Linocut Portraits
In this class, we’ll focus on carving and drawing techniques to help you create compelling portrait prints. We’ll practice white line and black line approaches to hatching and crosshatching to create subtle gradients of tone. Each student can expect to leave class with two small editions of woodcut portraits!
