Artist Sally Brophy will offer a class in white-line woodcuts on Saturday, January 18, from noon to 4 p.m. at Local Color Gallery, 135 High Street, Belfast. Brophy will discuss the origins of the process, which originated on Cape Cod 106 years ago, and teach participants to create blocks and prints. The art form is suitable for both beginners and experienced artists. Brophy has been creating white-line woodblock prints for more than 20 years and teaching the technique for 15 years. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Cape Cod Museum of Art and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, as well as in collections throughout the U.S. She was featured in the HBO film “Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson.” Tuition, $45, includes materials. The class is limited to 12 students of all ages. Registration is at the gallery, by phone at 218-1249, or by email at gallery@localcolorgallerymaine.com
