Fall is in full-swing! Taking inspiration from the season and traditional Chinese woodblock printing, design a foam-block print with teaching artist Yu Rong using foam sheets, scissors, and paint. Sketch an original design, cut and incise the shapes, paint and print! Mix and match your foam parts to create different patterns. Then, add details to your prints by drawing, painting, splashing, or using other creative artistic techniques. Don’t stop there – create different works of art from the same foam-block design.
Join us for an in-person workshop with teaching artist Yu Rong on Saturday, November 12th from 2:00 PM-4:00 PM. FREE— no RSVP required, simply show up!
