OUTSIDE: Plein Air Relief Printing with Vicky Tomayko

September 13th – 17th | Monday – Friday 1-4pm | 5 sessions | $380 for members $400 for non-members

Enjoy the outdoors while creating relief prints inspired by the surroundings. Work on drawings to transfer to blocks or carve directly on wood/linoleum. Meetings will take place in person at selected outdoor locations in Provincetown and the Provincelands. You can choose the material you prefer to work with and receive instruction in image making, carving, and printing your blocks by hand. Work in black and white or color. Options for color include selective inking, multiple blocks, and reduction printing. Students will have access to outdoor work space at PAAM for proofing and printing if the weather is inclement. Oil based inks and brayers will be available, but you will need to have your own carving tools, blocks, and paper.

Masks will be required in all outdoor and plein air workshops at PAAM, regardless of vaccination status.
