Last weekend I led a basic lino-cut workshop at the Schack Art Center, and once again I was inspired and impressed by what the participants accomplished in such a short time. Here's the result of their hard work:
Somewhere, hidden in one of my many piles of paper, is the print I made at my first lino-cut weekend workshop...it's a one-color print of a donut. At the end of the first day of this past weekend, I thought about seeking out the donut print to show my students, you know, to provide some comparison and give them some confidence. At the end of the workshop I was very glad I didn't follow through on this idea, as I would have been mortified comparing my donut to the proficient prints displayed above.
