with Jennifer Jackson
Get your spook on by creating Halloween themed designs!
Learn the ancient technique of block-printing: choosing a design, carving your stamp, inking and printing. Leave with an understanding of composition, line and how to create a printed image. Bring ideas and imagery of your favorite Halloween ghouls, goblins, monsters, haunted houses, etc. for your first print. If time allows you can design another print or make Halloween cards for friends and family. The instructor will be there to help with design inspiration. Wear appropriate clothing or bring a smock. Tuition includes some materials and ink.
Required: 11x14 inch Strathmore or Canson printmaking paper pad, Speedball linoleum carving tool, MOO Carve Carving Blocks or Staedtler Mastercarve 4x6 inch or larger (slightly smaller than your paper) and 2 carving blocks (approx. $20-$30).
Jennifer Jackson holds a BFA in Fine Art with a concentration in Painting from USM and took many courses in drawing, printmaking, photography and art education. She continues to try new techniques and crafts to keep herself immersed in the art world.
