Event description

Description

Join us for a one-day exploration of block printing with instructor Emily Robinson at the beautiful Laguna Environmental Center. We’ll start from the very beginning, getting a feel for tools and materials used to create prints, and will discover how carving can be a wonderful method of rendering our observations of the natural world- the veins of leaves, textures on bark, filaments of a feather, and more. Projects will begin with small experimental stamps, and as the day progresses, participants will carve a larger 4x6 piece. We’ll discuss all elements of the process, from planning to the final printing, with a focus on empowering students to continue printmaking on their own.

All materials are provided. Physical skills required include being able to safely hold and control a sharp gouge tool. This class is open to those 16 and older, and is best suited for printmaking beginners, as we will be starting with basics. No other drawing or art skills are necessary to participate. Please bring your own bagged lunch!

BIO: Emily Robinson has been printmaking since 2014 and has been doing many other forms of art since before she can remember. She currently teaches art to children, does freelance illustration, and travels around the state selling wildlife artwork at festivals and conferences. You can find samples of her work online at www.craftandquail.com and on Instagram @craftandquail.
