Bill and I decided to do something completely different last weekend, we went out to the Leighton Art Centre south of Calgary and learned the basics of reduction linocut printmaking from Lenny Lane, otherwise known as Lino Lenny. It was a busy two days, each of the budding artists brought designs we wanted to transfer to the lino block. With Lenny’s great instruction and encouragement, he guided us through the process step by step to our final images.
The Leighton Art Centre is just south of Calgary, and it is a wonderful place to visit, the house is now a gallery featuring local artists and printmakers. They have various workshops if you are interested in expanding or exploring your artistic skills.
Lino Lenny is a patient instructor as well as a knowledgeable and talented printmaker, I recommend you check out his webpage to fully appreciate the art printmaking
