Prints Alive! Rediscovering the Wonder in ART
Everyone can make art. In this workshop we will recall the wonder of making art, for
art’s sake. Printmaking provides a variety of techniques to create images and designs
that explore paint, oil pastels, ink and even crayons.
Prints Alive is a two hour workshop where you will create your own printing block, make
a transfer print and complete a monoprint all with found objects. We will also learn a
little art history while remembering what it’s like to make art without any judgment or
previous art making skills. Learn more about our workshops and Professional
Development offerings by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Become a subscriber at Art
