How can your experience with the printmaking process lead to a better understanding of the printed images we see daily?
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.
By the end of the Printmaking: Reduction Lino program, students will:
- Discover the history of printmaking through the examination of works by prominent artists, focusing on prints by Inuit artists.
- Explore relief carving techniques to produce line, texture, pattern and positive and negative space in printmaking.
- Demonstrate the safe use of lino carving tools to produce a relief printing block.
- Produce several coloured prints using a soft linoleum printing block.
