Printmaking: Reduction Lino

How can your experience with the printmaking process lead to a better understanding of the printed images we see daily?

Program Description

Reduction printmaking is both beautiful and challenging. Students will be supported through the reduction process, carving away their soft linoleum blocks to create colourful, layered prints. Students draw inspiration from examining works by prominent artists, focusing on prints by Inuit artists. Students will learn about editions and leave with their unique prints.
