Educational Opportunities At The Museum

Adult Workshop:

Print Like Picasso!  Exploring Color-reduction Relief Prints
Instructor:  Amy Guadagnoli
Two Saturdays April 18 & 25
, 10:00am – 3:00pm (w/lunch break)
$110.00 Non-members
$100.00 Members

In addition to his lifelong career in painting, Pablo Picasso was a prolific printmaker. One of the innovations attributed to him is the invention of a technique for printing multiple colors from the same linoleum block—the color-reduction method. In this workshop, participants will learn how to use this printmaking method to create a small edition of 2-4 color prints from a 6 x 8 linoleum block. We will print without a press, using non-toxic inks that clean easily with soap and water. All materials are included and all skill levels are welcome!

Summer Art Camp
Do you know a child who loves art?  Then the University of Maine Museum of Art Camp is the place to be this summer!  For children in grades 1-9,  this camp is jam-packed with fun gallery games, activities and creative art projects.  The art work in the galleries will be a springboard for learning as participants draw, paint, sculpt and learn basic print-making techniques. On Friday we have an art show and reception for family and friends!  To learn more or register call 561-3360 or email Education Coordinator Eva Wagner at eva.wagner@umit.maine edu.  Register early, space is limited!
