Linocut Class: Anne-Marie Perks

Anne-Marie Perks
Inspired by print artist and illustrator Gerry Turley facilitating at the SCBWI Picture Book Retreat this summer, I decided to learn more about lino cut and printmaking. This became part of my own professional development plan that I set myself every year. Sometimes it’s about learning a new skill I need to have for illustrating, animating, or storytelling, or it’s something completely different to shake things
up a bit.



Printmaking isn’t new for me. Like many of us who went to art school, printmaking was one of our required classes. I do remember having lots of fun back then doing monoprints, collagraphs, linocuts and etching. It was a while ago now. When I saw that Nick Morley was offering a three day intensive at the Art Academy at London Bridge, I had to go!  See what I learnt here!

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
