The Art Walk was set up like an indoor art fair, each artist had their own table and space to make art with the students. I set out a small display of colorful paintings, a relief print with a handful of wood type and books that I use for inspiration.
I talked to the kids about what I do in my studio, how I became an artist and the importance of being creative. A few crafty students even told me they wanted to be artists when they grow up! I wanted the children to see art and then get their hands dirty with some printmaking, so I brought along hand-carved stamps, a few ink pads and a stack of cardstock. The stamps were carved from rubber erasers, which are soft and small; perfect for little hands to get a good impression on paper. I also made some pattern stamps so they could adorn the borders. Check out a few of their awesome prints below!
