Stamp, Stencil, Print! (Exploring Printmaking) (in person)

Explore the magic of printmaking and discover how design, arrangement, color, layering and repetition are used to create unique patterns and prints. Ages 9-12

Create a variety of richly textured projects using combinations of painting and unconventional printmaking, while experimenting with materials, such as vegetables, plants, stencils and bubble wrap. Students design stamps using different methods, including carving, to adorn artworks. Uncover the history of print and pattern making, complete with a visit to the nearby Minneapolis Institute of Arts to look at prints and printed textiles from around the globe. Take home colorful print-paintings and an awesome collection of prints made by classmates. All prints will be on display for family and friends to enjoy at an art show on Friday afternoon!
