In this course, we will focus on the techniques of relief printmaking on a small scale for small prints and cards. We will explore traditional relief printmaking techniques focusing on types of surfaces you can use like, Linocut, easy-cut blocks as well as types of wood and MDF blocks. Ways of cutting and drilling into the surfaces will be discussed as well as reduction relief printmaking and layering of multiple relief plates. We will also be focusing on color-mixing and color theory with the use of relief printing techniques so you can learn to print your own prints at home. You will create original prints while exploring the medium of printmaking. This is a course for students of all levels.
