So excited about the new addition to the studio! I have been wanting this little baby press for years.
Printmaking was my focus for many years so I am looking forward to making collographs, monotypes and relief prints with the kids.

Fall Art Classes Now Enrolling!

 ...check out the classes page for details.



Here's a few more things from this years summer camps.

We looked at the work of Frida Khalo  before students started their own portraits. They were asked to add something to the background that was special to them as well as a banner that had their name on it and anything else they wanted to write.


Elena age 7


Torin Age 7 

Cole age 8
Our first step was carefully observing  ourselves in the mirror. We then tackled our portraits step by step, observing all the proportions of our features. Portraits were outlined with black marker and then filled in with oil pastel and water soluble crayons.
