Create an incredible and unique print with linoleum
You will learn a brief history of printmaking in order to begin with a specific printmaking technique: linoleum. Through this method, you will have the opportunity of exploiting your creativity and learn all the processes it involves. Inspired by the artwork of different mexican artists, you will be able to create an engraving and print it on paper and personalize tour own tote bag, so you can take a unique souvenir from Queretaro. Other things to note This activity involves being in contact with inks and materials that may get you dirty, so I recommend bringing old clothes, apron or clothes that can get stains.
