SUPPLY LIST

In the first session, the instructor will introduce to the linoleum block or woodblock printing in one color for each block. We will start doing a couple of mono prints. Then the student will produce an image and transfer it to the block as a negative image so the after the printing process the image will came out as the one that was originally planned. Afterwards, the student should cut the block with the gauges in their home so the block will be ready for the next step.

During the second session the student will learn the process of inking the block using the rollers in the area dedicated for inking. Once this process is assimilated, the student will use the paper to print the image in the block using a baren or a press. Once the student achieves the desired image he/she will make an edition of 5 prints.

About the Instructor:

imageJorge Mendoza has lived all around the world—Brazil, Madrid, Miami, and now Sarasota. His adventurous spirit drew him to a life of travel. As a young man, he visited Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Europe, drinking in the distinct art styles and traditions of each place. It all comes through in his work now. Mendoza began studying architecture in Bolivia but switched to visual art. “I liked colors and brushes much more than mechanical pens,” he says. In the late 1980s, he moved from Brazil to the U.S. to attend the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, where he received two master’s degrees, one in studio art, another in literature.

Mendoza is a researcher and knowledge seeker at heart. His work references many corners of the world but homes in on South America, his homeland. For Mendoza, the process of art making is indelibly linked to research and inquiry. The fabric of art, as he sees it, is woven from the threads of both technical and historical knowledge.
