Making blends old and new ways of doing things.

You may well have a printer in your house that can reproduce any image you send it. Not so long ago, the tools for printing required artful hands and patience. We will look at artists carving, stamping, rubbing and rolling images. Learn the name and purpose of each technique. Practice each method. Then print pages of your art in each technique. Bind the pages into a book. Bring the addresses of distant friends or grandparents. Print cards to send them in the mail, another not so long ago technology.

Please note: You will likely print your clothes a little too. Dress for mess. The paint and ink are approved for use by children.
