I am thrilled with the YACsters who participated in my first printmaking workshop last week! Special thanks to Raven Cook, Carmen Urcioli, Emilio Sapien, Lexy Marcuson, and Marian Fecha for attending & participating.
Here is my example piece that I completed along with the YACsters.
It can be a little daunting to teach something that involves a piece of equipment that is as potentially dangerous as the printmaking press. I had to really drill it in that you can seriously injure yourself.... thankfully I was taken seriously & there were no injuries!
I especially was thrilled that two artists in particular really took to the process of printmaking. Carmen & Raven produced some incredible blocks and pulled a lot of prints with color variations! I can't wait for the rest to get into more printing.
It was really awesome to guide these talented young artists in a new medium!
Here's what Carmen & Raven had to say on their social media...
