Theme: Respond to the historic linoleum block print by noted Nebraska art teacher Gladys Lux created in the 1930’s of the Lincoln skyline with the state capitol building under construction. We will similarly be influenced by Our Skyline in a myriad of approaches: views of our state capitol, downtown, local buildings, urban construction, iconic Nebraska landmarks, rural settings and structures, our open skies, nature silhouettes of trees and grasses, and conceptual ideas.
Activity: Join in onsite creative sessions, for mentoring, and to carve the “easy-to-carve” lino blocks. Photo and graphic source images will be on hand for generating ideas, and artists can bring their own source images. Printing assistants will run the presses to print from the blocks during the sessions. Studio tools are available to use on site, and good quality paper for the impressions will be provided. Your time commitment: 1 – 2 hours during a session.
Fee: There is a $10 participation fee, which covers one linoleum block 8” x 10”, and two print impressions, one of which will be used for the exhibition, one will be for the artist to take. Pay onsite, or register online at: www.constellation-studios.net
