Visual Language 07





Multi Color (multi block) Print you can do at home


I made this tutorial for my printmaking class so they could have something to review outside class meeting time.  I have found that some of them are more productive during evenings or weekends, and wanted to provide them with a guide.  Also, one of my goals this semester was to introduce printing techniques that students can do after graduation.  I remember suddenly not being able to print after graduation because most of the methods taught required heavy, expensive, unique machinery.  While the imagery in this tutorial is far from spectacular (it had to be kept simple enough to make sure focus was on technique and not the art itself), block printing can produce wonderful works of art in a basement or garage studio.
