Masur Museum to host relief printmaking workshop

Masur Musem

The Masur Museum of Art will host a relief printmaking workshop
with Stefan Nodarse, Saturdays, January 8, 15, 22, and 29
2:00 – 4:00 pm in the Carriage House at the Masur Museum of Art.

This printmaking workshop is comprised of 4 classes, lasting 2 hours per class, during Saturdays in January 2022. It will cover the basics of relief printing with linoleum and will serve as an introduction to the various tools and inks used in relief printing.

The class will look to the Japanese tradition of Ukiyo-e and the depictions of the Noh theater prints on display in the current Kōgyo: Japanese Theatre Woodblock Prints exhibition. It will also look to the techniques and imagery present in traditional Japanese printmaking, in combination with contemporary printing materials as inspiration for the creation of multicolor linocuts. The term ukiyo-e is translated to “pictures of the floating world” with depictions of everyday life, theater, human beauty, folk tales, and landscapes. The cost of the class will cover all the materials, provided by the museum, which students will keep. Beginners are welcome.

The cost of the class is $80 for museum members and $100 for non-members. You may call the museum at 318.329.2237 or visit to sign up. Payment in advance is required.

Stefan Nodarse is the Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at the Masur Museum of Art. He earned his MFA with a concentration in printmaking from Indiana State University and also teaches art courses at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

This class is presented as part pf programming for the exhibition Kōgyo Japanese Theatre Woodblock Prints, on view at the Masur Museum through February 5, 2022.
