Join local artist Raashad Parker* for a hands-on workshop to learn the basics of printmaking using LEGO bricks. In this 90 minute workshop, participants will use LEGO bricks to create original works of art. This unique process provides a playful introduction to relief printmaking. Create imagery, experiment with ink, and print on a printing press! Two sessions are available: June 10 & June 11 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 for members and $29 for members. (Non-member ticket prices include general admission for the full day.) This workshop is for children and adults, 6 years old and up. A parent or guardian must accompany children under 16 and must also register for the program. Admission is limited and requires pre-registration.
This program is made possible with the generous support of the Guido & Ellen Palma Foundation.

When children pretend, they’re using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality. A stick can be a magic wand. A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero.
