Lino Printing Inspired by Gestural Drawings

By Joy Johnston

This post shares a lino printing activity by Joy Johnston, inspired by the work of Mark Hearld. Gestural observational drawings are made with a variety of media, and then the resulting sketches used to inform lino cuts. This activity was done with a year 6 class, and is the perfect activity to record seasonal changes happening around us.
