Reminder: Printmaking Workshop
Planning for Christmas
Children beam when they see a Christmas card with their artwork
on it—and so do adults. Jacksonville State University's Field School and the Department of Art are teaming up to teach
how it's done. A printmaking workshop will be held at the McClellan Arts Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday,
Participants will learn how to create their own stationery, greeting cards, and art prints after acquiring the
techniques for linoleum block printing and natural-material printmaking. Artists Lynnette Hesser, Steve Loucks,
and Kelly Gregg will lead this unique hands-on workshop.
"We will be teaching various techniques that can be used in the classroom or at home," said Ms. Hesser, of the JSU
art faculty. "These techniques can be used for creative classroom projects for your student or to just have fun
with at home."
During the workshop, participants will receive their own tools and materials for making prints at home. Due to the
use of sharp tools, this program is not recommended for children under 12 years of age.
The cost is $45 per person, which includes the Dick Blick lino cutters set. A family member may participant for an
additional $20 if that person shares in the use of a tool kit.
