Just a quick check-in: the Printmaking Club is really starting to get underway! We are getting some screen printing ready to roll, we have started working with stencils, and we are planning to build our own bottle jack press so we can print using relief processes whenever we darn well please. These students are starting to really get excited, they are starting to step up and take charge just as I knew they would. David and I have very different approaches to getting them excited about the material and it is really working out well. He is a true master and I am a rabble rouser–we mesh well as advisors.
