ONSITE: Linocut Printmaking: Home Portraits
This course will explore linocut printmaking by defining ‘home’ and creating a print of it. This could be a building, a person, a pet, a park, anywhere that evokes the feeling of home. Sophie will be bringing in examples of her own work and portraits of her ‘home’ to share with the class. This course is open to all levels of printmakers from beginner to advanced. There will be an optional print exchange at the end of the course!
- Please come to class with a few photo references you might like to use to create your print! Where or what is home for you- Is it the physical building you live in? Is it your favorite restaurant? Your best friend? A park near where you grew up?
