Linoleum Block Extravaganza!
San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art Print Center
Thursday, February 21, 5-9 PM, Saturday February 23, Sunday February 24, 10 AM-5 PM
Open to all, this workshop is a great introduction to relief carving and printmaking. Students will learn how to carve and print their own single color blocks from start to finish. Linoleum block carving (linocut) is similar to traditional woodblock carving, giving imagery the same graphic punch but in a more accessible and easily carved medium. Perfect for all experience levels, this relief carving technique can stand alone or be incorporated into other print techniques.
Workshop fee includes one 9”x12” linoleum block, inks, and general studio supplies. Students required to bring some specialty tools estimated to cost $10-$15, on the first day of class. Printmaking paper (Rives BFK) is available for purchase at the ICA. Includes one FREE Open Access Day (a $120 value).
