NOTE: Registration will close for this program at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, December 2, 2022.

White-line woodcuts are multicolor images printed from a single block of wood. Also called Provincetown prints, they are a hybrid of monoprints and Japanese style multi-block woodcuts. Learn to create your own by cutting a nature print or simple line drawing into a single wood block with a knife or gouge, creating the “white lines” when printed. Color each area between the lines with watercolor or gouache and rub your paper with a wooden spoon to print the color, one section at a time. As in traditional woodblock printmaking, you can use your block over again, creating original monoprints each time.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
