Printmaking: WEEK 1- Ages 8-15
Anthony Kirk Archive: Summer programs
What is printmaking, you ask? It is the activity of making pictures or designs by printing them on plates or blocks. If you can push paint around with a brush then you can make unique one of a kind prints. Discover a new talent to express your creativity!
Throughout history, artists have made original prints and this summer RGOA is offering a weeklong workshop for young artists in our community to make prints of their own. This printmaking camp will engage participants in a host of techniques such as linoleum cuts, monotype printing from Styrofoam meat trays, and stencil printing, all using safe, Akua non-toxic inks. No solvents or chemicals are used and clean-up is with soap and water. A new technique/project will be introduced daily sometimes resulting in beautiful finished works to display or give away, while there will be days emphasizing experimentation and the simple fun of hours spent in individual creativity. Each student will receive step by step instructions and individual attention with projects being open ended so that he or she may decide the direction to take.
