Artmaking Workshops (60 minutes)

Collagraph Printmaking (1-3)
This artmaking workshop will engage students through the elements and principles of design in the creative process, first by drawing an image of themselves and then using a variety of paper and fiber-based materials to create a printing plate from which they will pull collagraph prints using water-based printing ink. Students will contribute to a large print to take back to school – which will represent everyone in their class!
