Earth Day Printmaking Workshop with CMA! ( 4/23 from 2-3pm)
April 23, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
This Earth Day, Children’s Museum of the Arts Artist-Educator in Residence Ciana Malchione teams up with Queens-based children’s art organization Art Strong to lead an Earth Day Printmaking Workshop for kids ages 4-10. This free workshop takes place on Saturday, April 23 from 2-3 PM at 43-67 11th Street in Long Island City, Queens. This is a drop off activity.
Children will make a series of collagraph prints thematically related to Earth Day. They will use recycled materials like cardboard, bubble wrap and string to make printing plates, considering nature and how we care for it when making their designs. Once the printing plates are finished, children will produce a series of prints using different colors and layers, reusing their designs just as they reused materials! This is a simple and fun process that can easily be repeated at home.
Advanced RSVP is required. Due to the interactive (and fun!) nature of the class, class size is extremely limited. Please make every effort to attend the class if you reserve a ticket. If you can no longer attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can open it up to another child. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation, and happy creating!
