Event Description

Linocuts have been a popular printmaking technique since the mid-20th century, and they are easy to make from home with the proper tools and techniques! Pick up a supply kit at the museum and watch an on-demand video to learn how to make your own relief linocut inspired by Elizabeth Catlett’s Sharecropper, a print featured in An Expanding Vision: Six Decades of Works on Paper. Carter Community Artist Sarah Ayala will teach you and your family how to carve your own design in a block, apply paint, and then create a unique print that you can make over and over again.

Active military families can RSVP for a free supply kit and access to the on-demand video. One kit per family; kit includes enough supplies for a family to collaborate on a print together. Upon registering, you will receive information about how to pick up your kit from the museum.
