Printmaking is an artistic process that creates an image by printing. Traditional methods of printmaking include etching, engraving, lithography, wood cuts, and wood engravings. Screen printing, such as that used for silk screens, and the more recent digital printing are also sometimes used. They generally include transferring ink from a special kind of matrix or screen to another material; that other material could be paper or wood, to name a couple of common types.
The Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas offers 2nd Saturday Family FunDay once a month to give children the opportunity in hands-on arts and science. The arts may be fine or performing and may include visual arts, music, theater, or dance. This month’s printmaking is a visual art that could easily fall under fine arts or have a practical, applied purpose.
The 2nd Saturday science project topics also run the gamut. Some are more directly related to an academic science topic while others are applied and venture into a technological area.
Second Saturday Family FunDay activities complement a current art or science exhibit at the Center. Parents and guardians who bring participants are welcome to stay for the fun.
