Reductive Woodblock Printing with Visiting Artist Casey Neumann #1072

Create a multi color relief print using just one woodblock! Reductive carving and printing involve printing a base color, carving out areas that are to remain this color, printing this reduced area (in a new color) over the initial impression, and so on. Precise registration techniques will also be covered. Editioning (pulling multiple prints of the same image) is an essential component of this process, and students will leave with a set of prints that can be distributed amongst friends, family, and possibly exhibition spaces. This accessible and innovative technique acts as a great introduction to the printmaking medium, and can push veteran printmakers into new and exciting territory as well!
