This is a six-week introductory course to relief printmaking using water-soluble inks. These non-toxic inks allow the artist to work safely, especially in poorly ventilated areas, while still producing high quality prints. Participants will learn techniques that can be used in a professional studio or on a kitchen counter. These skills include single, reduction, and multiple block printing, transfer techniques, registration systems, hand printing and printing with an etching press. Carving blocks, some paper, inks, and carving tools will be provided, but it is recommended individuals purchase additional tools and paper.

About the Instructor: Tyler Green is a Minnesota native who currently works at Highpoint Center for Printmaking as the Education Fellow. He runs the Access/Print project, a semester-long teen printmaking course, and assists at all levels of the education department. He received a BFA in Printmaking and a minor in Environmental Studies from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 2012.
