COLOR REDUCTION LINOCUT
with Curt Carpenter

July 20-21, 2024
Saturday & Sunday 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
$200
Some experience recommended. Supplies included. 

Learn how to carve and print a color reduction linocut. Progressive layers of carving and color printing result in rich, vibrant prints. By cutting away more and more of the block in between each color printing, the previous colors are revealed. By the end of the process, the block is sometimes “reduced” to almost nothing. Participants will go from designing their images and cutting blocks, to printing a limited-edition print series using non-toxic inks on rice paper by hand and on a printing press. Students will come to class with a simple ink drawing: 6.25″ W x 6″ H. Image transfer, carving, registration, inking, proofing, and edition printing will be demonstrated. Small class size (limited to 6) will allow for individualized attention. Some experience is recommended. Age 16+

CREATIONS & LIBATIONS

On the 4th Tuesday of each month, our local LGBTQIA+ community comes together to socialize, make art, network, and have fun with or without an adult beverage. The class will feature a variety of projects in a variety of media. All levels are welcome. You will feel comfortable exploring creativity if you have no experience making art and have fun if you are an accomplished working artist, all in a safe environment, which is why Creations and Libations was conceived.
