"Some Day My Prints Will Come: Printmaking in the Classroom"
and "Crossing the Fine Line: Illustration Techniques"

Students experience the world of printmaking and learn about print techniques such as relief-printing, collographs, stencilling, and mono-printing with a printing press.
Included during this curriculum-based program will be an introductory slide presentation and a mini-exhibit of the artist's prints, followed by a culminating art celebration/exhibition of completed student art work.

Employing a similar format, students will learn about various "illustration techniques."
Included in this residency, using curricular themes, will be instruction and hands-on learning with watercolour or acrylic painting, drawing media and techniques, claymation illustration, colour-theory collage, recycled paper-making, and various sculptural procedures involving mask-making, wire, clay, plasticine.
