CANCELLED

APRIL

Have you ever wanted to carve your own design and print it?! In this month’s activity, we will be making that happen! Our art educator will safely walk you through the process of creating a design and carving it into a piece of linoleum. You can then print it on paper, or if you have fabric, a canvas tote, or an article of clothing, we will have the opportunity to experiment with printing it on surfaces other than paper. Pre-registration is required and there will be an additional $5 cost for supplies.
