This project was for most the first time they were introduced to carving linoleum. We used something called wonder-cut which is a little softer. The students decided on an animal to draw on their 4 x 6 shape.
Next they outlined the subjects and background with a thin tool. The hardest part was to decide the dark and light parts. The white areas were carved out. The assignment required the students to include texture in the animal and a special signature of their name somewhere. Albrecht Durer , hid his initials somewhere in each of his carvings and engravings.
