This hands-on printmaking workshop will focus on the Chipboard Relief technique, an inexpensive, non-toxic printmaking process that can be successfully completed with or without the use of a press. We will also discuss cross-disciplinary projects and new strategies to stimulate learning through the art of printmaking, as well as classroom management when using these techniques with large groups of students.
