Teaching Printmaking in Grade-School Classrooms
Studio in a School, New York City, New York

I was asked by SIS to teach their teachers-in-training about the ways they could bring printmaking into the grade school classroom. I worked out several approaches and lessons for them, and we went through a few demos. I produced a full set of handouts so the teachers would have everything they needed to bring cogent, affordable, and fun projects into their lessons.
