With oil-based inks, you will roll and print from those onto rag paper and then develop your images with gouache staining and/or acrylic paints. Through the process you can explore how to use different hand-printing and painting techniques to affect the value and texture of your pieces.

The trail races explore Moran State Park's many mountain lakes, wooded single track trails, and the 2,409 foot Mount Constitution on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington state. The trails offer views of the Cascade Mountain range to the east, surrounding islands, and American and Canadian cities. You can see Mount Baker dominating the skyline with its snow-capped top rising out of the Cascades. A bank of clouds below the rocky cliff as you summit Mt. Constitution and green islands rising through the clouds like rocks in a wild sea make this race one of the most stunning trail 50 miler/ half and full marathons in the Pacific Northwest. On the summit, there stands a stone observation tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936. The tower offers panoramic views of the sea, islands, mainland and the Cascades.
