Block Printing Workshop @Central A&M

Come and learn the basics of water based linoleum block printing in a hands-on workshop with artist Max Stadnik. We will cover everything from planning out your image, simple carving technique, inking & printing, and basic curation. The method you will learn can be done with very few resources in your own home or studio. By the end of the workshop you will have a few color prints and your own hand carved block that you can print anytime.

Ages 12 and up are welcome at this workshop, and no experience is required.

No Dar Papaya: Fotografías De Colombia @Central A&M

These remarkable images, created with a Polaroid camera, celebrate the beauty, diversity, and distinctive national character of Colombia. The work presents a unique vision of the country that is an alternative to the ubiquitous portrayals of Colombia commonly found in the international media, which focus on conflict, violence, drug trafficking, and suffering.
