From raw, brutal expressionism to delicate, highly detailed rendering, the linocut is truly an exciting and vital medium. We will explore examples of linocut prints from Matisse to artistic movements in Russia, Germany, Britain and Mexico. We will discuss approaches to layout and design to give you the freedom to best express your images. You can focus your approach on directly transferred images or steer away from the drawing with a more sculptural “cut and proof” repetition technique. You will develop confidence with cutting tools and learn hand-printing techniques. This is an excellent, inexpensive and non-toxic art form to take with you to your home studio. Beginners and continuing students are welcome.


NICHOLAS COLLINS studied sculpture at UCSB, and printmaking at College of the Redwoods. He trained in etching and linocut at KALA in Berkeley where he was an artist in residence for two years. His work can be seen at Northcoast Artists Gallery in Fort Bragg and the Mendocino Art Center.
