Local artist Heather Hogan invites you into her world of linocut and block printing with a fun Valentine’s themed workshop. Choose from a handful of pre-made stencils or draw your own design that you’ll carve onto a 4″x5″ block.

During this class you’ll:

  • get a quick overview of designing art for printmaking
  • learn how to transfer a design to a block
  • discover simple carving techniques
  • receive tips to print your block and what type of paper to use

Materials included in this workshop:

  • Speedball linoleum cutting set with 6 cutter edges
  • 2 (4×5) blocks — one for class & one for home

You’ll use these in class and take them home to continue your artistic endeavors.

Your block is the perfect size for Valentine’s cards. Send a personal touch to your loved ones during this Season of Love! Printmaking is a versatile medium – beginners can keep their designs simple or more advanced artists can add depth and texture to their work. This class is for everyone, age 13 and up.


About the Instructor:

Heather Hogan’s love of art solidified by 3rd grade with a first prize ribbon at the county fair for her masterpiece in glue and chalk – a macaw. Later, she earned a BA in studio art, new media (meaning digital arts) from CSU Chico. After a stint in San Diego animating for Starfall, trips to Europe, Thailand, and Burning Man, Heather settled in Sacramento. She teaches Web design, makes websites, and every day – with passion and love –  makes art.

At present, Heather is the Marketing & Outreach Coordinator at Sierra 2 Center for the Arts & Community, teaches web design at Sacramento City College, takes on a few freelance web projects, and makes art on nights and weekends.
