From raw, colorful expressionism to delicate, highly-detailed rendering, the linocut is truly an exciting and vital medium. Over the course of this two-day workshop, we will explore approaches to layout and design that give you the freedom to best express your particular images. We will also carve in wood for this session.

You will develop confidence with cutting tools and learn hand-printing techniques. We will be working in both monochrome and color reduction cut techniques. All supplies will be provided – just bring in a few images that you’d like to work with (maximum size 14’’ x 19”) and a lunch or lunch money. Returning students welcome. Beginning to advanced. This is a satisfying, inexpensive, and non-toxic art form to take with you to your home studio.


NICHOLAS COLLINS studied sculpture at UCSB and trained in etching and linocut at KALA in Berkeley where he was an artist in residence for two years. For the last two and a half years, Nicholas has been teaching linocut to the incredible group of artists with developmental disabilities at Art Explorers.
