8th grade students in the Printmaking Showcase class revisited what it means to make a linocut in Printmaking. Linocut is a form of relief printing. A design is carved into a piece of linoleum that is then inked with a brayer, and a print is made by placing a sheet of paper on top so that the ink transfers to the paper. Students were able to create their own 2-4 stage linoleum cut prints of and image as long as it had a background of some sort and filled the entire block.
