Painterly Woodblock Relief Print

Center For Contemporary Printmaking
1/19/18 - 1/21/18


Lyell Castonguay

Friday-Sunday, 3-day workshop

Class size 4-8, All Levels

Learn to navigate the duality of spontaneous mark marking and precise wood carving while translating loose brush strokes into a woodblock print.  Castonguay will guide participants through the process of painting, carving, and printing a 12″ x 12″ image.  Students will utilize the “Matisse method" which involves using a long dowel to paint from a distance to achieve the inherent possibilities of gestural drawing. The goal of this workshop is to capture the illusion of immediacy in your woodblock print.  Each stroke will be meticulously carved in order to prepare the painted image for printing. Castonguay will teach proper tool use and maintenance as well as block preparation and print registration.
