Printmaking Club: Valentine’s Day, 2015

Art

Every year, I head to City Tech on or as close to Valentine’s Day as I can with at least 50 pounds of potatoes and some tempera paint. I set up tables with supplies in the Atrium and invite any takers to make handmade cards for┬átheir honeys. This year, I’m bringing 100 pounds as we ran out way too soon last time.
