BRING TO NEXT CLASS: A reference picture for our printmaking project. Send it to me if you are unable to print it at home. It does not need to be in color and can be about 1/2 page in size.
Our next project will be a linocut printmaking project. (I'm delaying the colored pencil project for now.)
You will draw a picture based on your reference photo, transfer it onto a piece of linoleum, and carve out the negative space with carving tools. Then we will use printer's ink to create multiple prints. Here is a picture of one that I did, using a bird picture for reference. You may want to consider choosing a Christmas theme so that you could print Christmas cards. You will be able to reuse the printing plates at home using a stamp pad if you'd like. Your design CAN include words if you'd like.
