Relief Printmaking (Ages 9-10)
Explore relief printing, a type of printmaking. The process consists of cutting or etching a surface in such a way that all that remains of the original surface is the design to be inked and printed. In this class we will be cutting into linoleum, an accessible and easy to carve medium, to create our own unique designs. We’ll make multiples of each design and students will walk away with many pieces to share with their friends and family. You’ll also have new knowledge of a timeless printmaking process.
