Do Try This At Home

Thanks to YouTube, we've come a long, long way in the educational "audio-visual" genre. Remember film strips?

Here are two wonderfully creative how-to vids about printmaking found on YouTube: 

The first is a four minute stop motion production made by artist Armenio Rodriguez and friends from the Los Angeles based La Mano Press who demonstrate how to carve and print a woodcut. Here is the link.

The second is a quite different but equally inspiring presentation by Jared Roth of artist Bridget Henry demonstrating how to create a reduction wood cut. It is ten minutes long, so save it for later, when you can relax and enjoy the whole thing. Here is the link. 

Thanks, Loren Fierman and Pablo Sandoval!
