Learning the art of printmaking

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - Students of all ages were invited to learn how to create their own works of art through printmaking.

“We carve these blocks basically we carve away everything that’s white and then when you Inc. that up and print it to a piece of paper you start to see the image transfer to the paper and then we’re ultimately going to be folding these up into an accordion and binding them with covers that they’ve made and so the box will kind of stand, three-dimensional in space. And we’re focusing on panoramic landscapes so the students brought in photographs or sketches from their own experiences with the landscape around them,” Associate Professor of Printmaking at Minnesota State University, Mankato Josh Winkler said.

This workshop was made possible through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. There may be future opportunities to take similar classes at the Carnegie Art Center.
