Printmaker Chris Shore from the Center for Contemporary Printmaking (CCP), will share his wealth of knowledge and project ideas with K–12 teachers in a pair of exciting Here and There workshops. Session 1 at the KMA will introduce printmaking without a press. Beginning with innovative ways to use the old stand-by, styrofoam plates, in ways you never imagined, Mr. Shore will then demonstrate a great range of no-press printing techniques. Session 2 will take place at CCP in Norwalk CT, where participants will see the endless possibilities of working with classroom-safe materials and a working press. Teachers will come away with practical classroom printing ideas to last a lifetime!
