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.
