Arts on Tap
The ARTS Project’s new workshop series where you can try your hand at different art forms, enjoy a drink, and let creativity flow.
Friday October 20, 6 – 8:30 p.m.
Arts on Tap: Printmaking Edition
This isn’t your average paint party. Come and discover the world of printmaking during this one night event with local artist Jen Hamilton. Here you will have the chance to carve and print your own tree or forest using easy-to-carve linoleum. You will be taught proper carving techniques and how to hand pull a print. This process tends to take patience, so make sure to relax and have a glass of wine or beer from our cash bar! We supply all of the materials -all you need to do is show up and be ready to fall in love with printmaking. Each attendee will leave having printed a small edition of their linocut that they can take home with them.
Our very own artist-in-residence Lori Jensen-Brazier will be Jen’s print assistant during this workshop. The workshop will take place in the gallery among Lori’s Rezoning installation.
