"Fun With Drawing"

This demonstration will consist of techniques with traditional charcoal, graphite and Cretacolor Nero pencil, an oil based charcoal. Marjory will share the advantages of various papers, mediums and methods in sketching. She will also share how to create textures and values to produce realistic looking artwork.

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a demonstration of
linocuts (relief prints), by accomplished artist and gallery owner, Rosey Rosenthal.

Rosey Rosenthal earned a Bachelor of Art degree in Graphic Arts and Illustration from Pratt Institute. It’s difficult to express Rosey’s accomplishments without mentioning his wife and partner, Barbara. The Rosenthal’s are founding members of the Central Coast Printmakers Group of (SLOMA) San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, originating 36 years ago. Rosey, his wife Barbara, Stevie Vorhees and Joan Sullivan operated The Baywood Gallery, at the pier in Baywood, CA. Rosey and Barbara initiated the artist group, (SLAG) an artists’ cooperative located within the San Luis Obispo, Creamery Building. The Rosenthal’s later opened “Art is for Everyone”, a gallery in Baywood Park serving the public for 9 years. They established a printmaking studio, “Granada Arts” in Los Osos, selling over 30,000 etchings and relief prints, where they have taught etching workshops since 1981. Barbara brought art to the San Luis Obispo public schools, through the Santa Barbara Creative Project, for nine years.

During this demonstration, Rosey will give a quick overview of how to make and print linocuts (relief prints) including cutting materials, printing papers and proper inks. He will share how to maintain tools, cleanup and home printing. Touching on everything from rubber stamps to steamroller prints, Rosey will share how easy it is to print linocut/relief prints without a press.
