Pet Portraits - look for this class in January

This is an all-levels class. Using a photo or sketch of your pet, we will carve wood blocks for printing your pet's portrait. You can create a piece of art that can be made into multiples for art prints, cards, or pattern printing. Choose 4x6 or 5x7 size. Week 1 our focus will be design considerations and carving the wood blocks. Week 2 we will test print, finish carving, and archive print.
Email Jessie at firstname.lastname@example.org with design ideas before the class for feedback if you would like! Templates available in the class will be simple designs that lend themselves to black and white printing and take advantage of the wood grain.
