Relief Printmaking Workshop

Lead by Frank Pesko

Ages 12-14
Saturday, December 17th, 1-3pm

Relief printing was the first method of printing. Printing allowed artists to create images and text, that could be shared with many. Using carving tools, the artist carves out their image from a block of wood, or linoleum. The surface is inked; paper is laid on over the surface of the block and gently rubbed. When the paper is removed the impression of the image is revealed.

The Pop Up Gallery Group (P.U.G.G.) began as an idea. Get students involved in mid-town, through the arts. Thanks to the generosity of the City of Kingston and the Kingston City School District, an after school program was formed. Students are taught the ins and outs of Gallery management. They are tasked with installing Pop Up Galleries, in empty storefronts on Broadway, in Kingston, NY. The Goal is to highlight our homegrown artists, showing alumni of K.H.S., who continue to make great art, right here in there own hometown.
