 Registration is closed for this event
Young artists will use inspiration from nature to create prints on paper. This workshop will show two methods of printmaking for both grade school (Styrofoam Printmaking) and middle/high school (Printmaking with Nature).

Printmaking is the process of creating artworks by printing, normally on paper, but also on fabric, wood, metal, and other surfaces. Ukrainian artists used several different methods of printmaking, including woodcuts, etchings, linocuts, and lithographs. Craft inspired by the series "Ukraine 1933: A Cookbook" by Mykola Bondarenko.
