Whiteline or Provincetown Prints


Whiteline or Provincetown Prints The whiteline print is a multi-colored woodblock print developed in Provincetown, MA as a way to simplify the making of the popular Japanese prints. Artists developed a way to carve the woodblocks with a carved line separating each color, so they could do a multicolor print using just one block. Then color is transferred onto the paper by placing the paper over the painted block and rubbing the back of the paper with a wide spoon. What makes this process even more unique is that watercolor is used rather than printmaking ink. All levels of experience are welcome. A $5 provided materials fee is due at the beginning of the workshop for a woodblock. Please check the DAC website for the additional supply list. Instructor and artwork by: Mary Walker
