2011 White Line with Lynne Hubner
White line printmaking originated in Provincetown Mass in 1915. Followers of Arthur Wesley Dow and the Columbia Teachers College in NYC developed a process that required little expense: Pine boards, a knife, a silver spoon, a selection of watercolor paint and light weight fine papers. The overall style made reference to Japanese and Cubist influences.The subject matter of these prints were consistent with the artists surroundings:landscapes, still lifes, figure studies, town scenes etc. The process has been passed down from one woman printmaker to another. Happily this is a non toxic process easy to produce in a studio without a press. In this workshop I will cover a variation of the original process that speeds up the printing of a multicolor image.
