An allocation in the amount of $2,615 has been awarded to the Goff-Nelson Memorial Library to support the implementation of 8 sessions of the Workshop Print, Prose and Recycle, as part of Creative Aging in New York State Libraries: A Regional Model with National Applicability.
Workshop: Print, Prose and Recycle
Teaching Artist: Nadia Korths
By using recycled materials and eastern-style printmaking techniques, participants will make vibrantly colored prints on paper. Participants will learn a non-toxic, abstract printmaking technique to create prints by hand and create word images from everyday observations. With the theme of time, students will compile their prints and vignettes into an art book, which will be showcased at a culminating event.
Workshop Dates: Thursdays, 9:30am-11:30am.
May 16, 23, 30; June 6, 13, 20, 25 (Tuesday); July 2 (Tuesday), 2013
Culminating Event: Thursdays, July 11th, 2013, 9:30am-11:30am
Workshop location: Goff Nelson Memorial Library, 41 Lake St., Tupper Lake, NY
