Pablo Picasso was a prolific printmaker. One of the innovations attributed to him is the invention of a technique for printing multiple colors from the same linoleum block—the color-reduction method. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use this printmaking method to create a small edition of 2-4 color prints from a 6 x 8 linoleum block. We will print without a press, using non-toxic inks that clean easily with soap and water. All materials are included and all skill levels are welcome!
