Foam Printmaking with Ellyn Weiss

  • ArtSpace 614 S Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States

This Touchstone@ArtSpace workshop is offered for children 4-8 years old.  Siblings are welcome.  Caregivers are welcome to stay or drop off.  Children under 4 must be accompanied by a caregiver.  $10/child or $20/child for all 4 children's workshops. Sign up!

This very rewarding printmaking process uses thin sheets of foam, a sharp tool like a pen to turn a drawing into a print.  Children will learn how to make an edition of 5-10 prints of the same work. 

Ellyn Weiss works in a wide variety of media. The paintings and sculpture in her most recent solo shows have used wax, oil bar, dry pigment and tar.  Weiss's work has, for many years, been inspired by the imagery of biological and natural structures and most recently, by the threats posed to life by global climate change. She is a current Touchstone Foundation board member and former chair.
