December 1st PA Day : Printmaking – Linocut Postcards (8-13yrs)
Friday December 1st 2017
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Price: $ 75.00 CAD
Make your own set of postcards just in time for the holiday season!
In relief printing, the material is carved away, leaving the design on the surface to be inked and printed. In this workshop, you will turn your own design, or a design or image of your choice, into a reusable postcard size linocut block. You will learn use of the tools, carving techniques, application of black or coloured inks, and printing on paper, creating several similar postcard prints, or a series of variations. Non-toxic inks will be used.
Artist Instructor: Heather Phillips
Our full day program schedule consists of daily sketching exercises, 2hr morning and afternoon studio sessions, and various outdoor activities. We believe an important part of the artistic process is having a good mental and physical balance. Each day we will be going outside (weather permitting) to experience our neighbourhood and how it can inspire creativity! Our camp takes place in our ARTiculations Second Floor Studio. In addition to our home base we also use our neighbourhood, frequenting local galleries and parks.

A full lunch, reusable water bottle and 2 snacks (nut free)
