Using a fun portable press, kids will get to “roll out” their own prints while exploring the colorful world of prints and printmaking!
A brief introduction to Monotype, Collagraph, Gyotaku, and relief printmaking will begin this adventure.
Working under the step-by-step guidance of our printmaker, each student will use non-toxic water-based ink, lots of fun textured materials, and Plexiglas plates to create and take home an original print of his or her own design.

Students are encouraged to bring their ideas, emotions and hidden thoughts to the development of puppet characters.
The results can be delightful dinosaurs, breathtaking butterflies or a variety of fascinating creatures.
This workshop, by artist Howard Berelson, gives participants the opportunity to create their puppet from simple materials and enter an imaginative world of movement, shape and color.
Through improvisation and puppet manipulation, students develop social, verbal and fine motor skills.
