INTRODUCTION TO BLOCK PRINTING: SUMMER FLOWER GREETING CARDS 

Join local artist Mary DeStefano of Mabel Art & Design for this fun and hands on class!

This is an introductory course and no art experience is required. In this class you will learn about the basic tools used in block printing, what makes a good drawing for block printing, and how to cut a block. We will each cut one block, into the image of a flower. We will then make multiple prints from the block on different colored papers and with different colored inks. At the end of the class we will mount your favorite prints onto greeting cards.

At the end of the class everyone will know how to cut a block and make a unique print and will take home three 5”x7” greeting cards, a variety of practice prints, and your block.

PRICE: $65. All materials will be provided.

TIME: 1:30-4
