Blotted Line Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
Learn Andy Warhol’s blotted line process by combining image tracing with basic printmaking skills.
Warhol began by copying a line drawing in pencil on a piece of non-absorbent paper, such as tracing paper. Next, he hinged this piece of paper to a second sheet of more absorbent paper by taping their edges together on one side. With a fountain pen, Warhol inked over a small section of the drawn lines. He then transferred the ink onto the second sheet by folding along the hinge and lightly pressing or “blotting” the two papers together. The process resulted in the dotted, broken, and delicate lines that are characteristic of Warhol’s illustrations. Warhol often colored his blotted line drawings with watercolor dyes.
The fee for the class is $35, and will last approximately two hours. Participants are asked to bring their own preferred paint medium (watercolor paint, watercolor markers, colored pencils, or acrylics). All other supplies will be provided
