This past weekend was a real join for me. The Art Gallery of Regina had invited me to come and teach one of my all time favourite classes linocut printing. This method made popular by Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso continues to enjoy a revival among today’s visual artists. In the class I talked about basics of designing, planning, mono prints, muli-coloured single print processes, dual block printing processes, registering your blocks for dual printing, the suicide or reduction carving and printing method as well as safety and materials used. I also covered briefly how artists may incorporate these techniques into their already existing art practices in watercolour, and mixed media acrylic painting.
There has already been preliminary talk about a future art class I will teach for the Art Gallery of Regina in the winter of 2016 on mixing flesh tones in acrylic! Thank you to the gallery for the invitation to teach and I am am looking forward to future classes held in conjunction with you!
