Today at the library my good friend Michelle Wiebe taught print making for the Jr Artist Program at the Airdrie Public Library and it was fantastic. She shared a variety of processes and then utilized a 'carving' technique with styrofoam that our local Co-op grocery store graciously donated. Using a glass plate, she showed the kids to spread the printmaking ink out evenly onto the roller and then taught them how to impress their image onto paper using the back of a spoon as a brayer. The kids were totally engaged and did an amazing job. Thanks Michelle...it really was an awesome afternoon.
