Want to improve the graphic "punch" of your relief prints? This is an un-messy, informal printmaking seminar and roundtable discussion, with examples and handouts in developing better one-color and multiple color prints. We'll talk about the principles of good design and how to adapt your references specifically to relief printmaking. How to use traditional illustration techniques to develop your ideas. How to avoid design pitfalls when using Photoshop and other digital tools. And how good design will better organize your workflow. (You can apply a lot in this seminar to your 2D art and illustration in general!)

An introduction to multiple color woodcut printmaking. No printmaking experience is required, but some basic art class background is necessary. Students will learn a method of woodcut using oil-based inks and an alternative registration system. We'll mostly print by hand, but you have the option of learning how to use a press.

By the end of this 2-day workshop, a student will have finished a 4"x6" woodcut print in three colors or more and will be able to pursue multiple color relief printing in their own home studio with minimal equipment.*Expect to do some carving at home on Saturday night!*
