August 19th (10:30am-4:30pm) This printmaking is a fast easy way to learn the basics of printmaking. Use art elements and principals of design to create one-of-a-kind prints that work up very quickly using provided paints and tools. We’ll do some with just color, try some stencils, add bits of collage once they are dry (they dry very quickly). We’ll do a basic plate and then start experimenting. Wear clothes to “play dirty!” come ready to experiment. Cleanup is simple with baby wipes, but all the art tools will be provided. Please bring a brown bag lunch or a snack-once started you may not want to stop! Best for ages 14+, no experience necessary. No cell phones, please.
