Proud of my woodblock students at MCBA

On the sixth and last session of our woodblock class at MCBA, many students felt like they were just starting to get the hang of printing their woodblocks, and wished that we had one or two more sessions. Looking at their prints, I was proud of how far they had come in six weeks. If they want to, they now have a solid foundation to continue experimenting on their own.

This student, a painter, was interested in using woodblock to try different color variations.

This student used imagery from her sketchbook, varying the background color.

This student used a single block to print both the red and yellow signs.

This student focused on the detailed carving of the black outline (key block).

This student played up the contrast between the carved details of the thorns and the soft gradations of the sky.
