AP students stamp out art

The Advanced Placement Drawing and Art students are repeating themselves with linoleum relief prints.

“They are currently working on a relief print using linoleum. They carve into the linoleum and then everything that is raised on the block of linoleum they ink up and it prints. Everything that is not raised will actually be white paper space,” said Matt Henderson, the AP drawing and painting teacher.

These artists get to express themselves with a permanent stamp of their own art that they hand carve. Each piece can be repeatedly inked and stamped out to replicate the art.

“I think that it’s really cool,” senior Kaleigh McCullough said. “It’s just very tedious because if you mess up you can’t go back. You’ve got to get it right the first time.”
