By day two of the Black & White Linocut workshop at Saltgrass Printmakers, we have moved well beyond my goals for the class. These new printmakers are printing multi-block images with blended color rolls. You can’t beat a career where the job’s description is to help other people fulfill their creative visions.

They’ve been working on monotypes all summer long.

Art Access is located at 230 South 500 West #125, Salt Lake City, Utah.
