Linoleum cutting, the most accessible of print mediums, lends itself to bold, declarative graphic effects as well as works of subtlety and sophistication and can be practiced at relatively low cost.

 

During the recent Covid-19 lockdown MGC Instructor David Barthold, best known for his engravings, was able to cut, print, and paste up several linoleum cut editions using simple hand tools and an improvised basement print shop.  Most blocks were laid out and cut on his lap or on the kitchen floor.  

 

In a series of 6 one-hour online classes, students will be exposed to various strategies for drawing up, cutting and printing, and offered guidance in tool choice.  The class will also study historical and contemporary relief art, and how classical effects can be reproduced in a home studio.
