KIDS ‘N’ PRINTMAKING:

  • Students will learn how to make linoleum (lino) block relief prints. A lino print results when a piece of linoleum (either household or special lino you can purchase from an art supply store) has had pieces cut out of it, been inked and been printed. For this activity, sharp tools are required and it is for this reason we do not recommend children under the ages of eight participating. Before starting this, students will learn about studio safety, will become familiar with the tools and inks involved, the types of paper used and more.
