Learn the fundamentals of relief block printing in this course that will focus on creating patterns from square “tiles” carved from linoleum blocks. We will also learn to operate a Vandercook #4 Proof Press to take advantages of a letterpress’s precise registration and rapid production of many prints. 

Students will have two blocks to implement their designs; multicolor techniques such as multiple blocks and reduction will be discussed. Once dry, prints will be trimmed and collaged onto larger sheets to compose larger works with options of swapping prints to collaborate with fellow students.
