PRINTMAKING : KIDS EDITION

Who doesn't love watching kids put their talents to use? Not a single soul! Last week the Community Arts Manager here at VSC, Arista Alanis, held her yearly art camp with children ages 6-12, at Gallery 2. With different residents volunteering throughout the week, including myself, Arista was able to teach the kids several different Printmaking processes - Mono Tracing, Silkscreening, Woodcut,  and Multi-Layer printing were just a few of the techniques that were demonstrated during camp. At the end of the week, the kids put on an exhibition of their work and invited family, friends and VSC staff and residents to view all of the great work that was produced over the week. It was definitely an inspiring experience!
