COLOR EXPLORATION WORKSHOP
This workshop is an in-depth hands-on exploration of color. Artists of all ages will have fun learning about the complex world of color using printmaking. At the completion of this workshop, artists can expect to take home multiple colorful unique monotypes. Ages 6+ are welcome to participate and parents are encouraged to get involved in this fun-creative experience. *Younger children may participate if closely supervised by a parent.
CREATING COLLAGRAPHS WORKSHOP
In this workshop, artists will learn plate making, typesetting, printing editions, and how printmaking has the ability to give the artist a voice. Artists will make a plate of their own design using foam and hardboard pieces. Participants will cut out shapes in craft foam using scissors. There will be some pre-cut shapes and type provided to help in creating their print imagery. The resulting artwork will be print editions of their own designs. Ages 7+ are welcome to participate and parents are encouraged to get involved in this fun-creative workshop. *Younger children may participate if closely supervised by a parent.
