Plein Air Printmaking with Carol McQuaid
Wed, May 17, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Wed, May 17, 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM
Carol will show you how to bring your printmaking outdoors with ease.
Carol will demonstrate how she selects her composition, carves the linoleum and prints editions on site. She hopes to showcase the many possibilities and easy mobility of plein air printmaking.
Many supplies will be discussed and used including linoleum, linoleum cutter, block printing ink, barons, and Stonehenge paper. Carol will show you a block print from start to finish, touching on planning out a linocut, carving and cutting, mixing ink, and finally printing. Attendees will learn how to easily bring their printmaking practice outdoors.
Space is limited and registration is required.
Please visit Opus Downtown Vancouver or contact them at 604‑678‑5889 to register.
