Block Printing - Art Partner

Learn the basics of block printing one-on-one in this introductory art partner course. 
Block printing is a type of relief printing that utilizes a carved block made of wood, linoleum, softcut rubber, or vinyl. The block is rolled up with ink and printed onto a surface using pressure applied either by hand or a printing press. This crash course includes lessons on carving (into softcut), inking, and printing. Demonstrations will be done with pre-carved blocks with time allowed for you to carve your own block. This course qualifies you for open studio hours so you can continue with your block printing adventures! 
Bianca Ferreira is an artist and designer in Stillwater with a passion for printmaking. Bianca likes to dabble in all arts but excels most in printmaking, illustration and graphic design. They received a BFA in Studio Arts from the University of New Mexico, which is where they fell in love with printmaking—especially lithography. Bianca was selected to work in collaboration with student printers at Tamarind Institute of Lithography during their senior year. Their work was subsequently exhibited in the Tamarind Gallery's exhibition, Excavation: A Tamarind Student Exhibition. Bianca loves to initiate their students into the analogue world of printmaking, teaching methods that are at once age-old and contemporary.
