The Jacksonville State University Field School and the Department
of Art will hold a printmaking workshop at the McClellan Arts
Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 27.
Participants will learn how to create their own stationary,
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 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.
