Printmaking: the activity or occupation of making pictures or designs by printing them from specially prepared plates or blocks.
- MoMA - What is a Print? An incredibly impressive and interactive website that includes a glossary of printmaking terms, demonstrations of printmaking types, and examples of various prints from the museum's collection.

Here are some of the methods that we will try (time permitting):
1) Lino cut
3) Monotype and monoprint
5) Tape transfer
6) Gel medium transfer
