    Students will be given a block of linoleum to produce a print and will have their picture printed by the last day of the class. You will be shown how to handle the gouge to cut away the linoleum to produce a block to be printed. Students will also learn how to use different colors on the same block of linoleum. Linoleum is a good way to make cards and gifts. 

    Adults age 18 and up

    Beginners welcome!

    With time and practice, students will develop a better eye for creating pictures from their imagination.  They will be able to see errors in their drawings of objects.  Students will learn how to set up a blank sheet of paper to create their idea for a drawing/painting that is accurate in proportions and space. 

    Students need have to have a "T" square and two triangles.  One is a 30 -60- 90 and the other one is a 45-45-90.  The larger the better.  The T square should be at least 24 inches in length.
