This course will introduce students the art of reduction relief printmaking, a method for creating vibrant, multicolored print using just one block. Throughout this course, we will study examples of relief prints by contemporary artists and delve into the process of creating images using three or four different colors. Guided by drawing, we will alternate between printing a color and carving to reveal the layers beneath. The class will cover the entire process of reduction relief printing, from creating a registration jig, to dividing colors, translating images onto the block, mastering carving techniques, and finally, printing on the press using water-soluble ink.
