Behind the Mask: printmaking magic

Jun 21 - 25, 2021

9AM - 3PM

Concept

Expand your child’s creativity through printmaking and an exploration into the animal world. Do dragonflies inspire dance? Perhaps tigers unlock a roar while butterflies inspire one to soar. Participants create a portrait that melds the human and beast into a stylized animal mask. The workshop looks at symmetry and proportion as students focus on facial details, layering texture, pattern and color to enhance their ideas. Final designs are transferred and carved into Soft Kut linoleum plates presented as a magical display of printmaking.

Health & Safety

Anderson Ranch is closely following local and national health and safety guidance. Beginning February 2023, Anderson Ranch will no longer require proof of Covid-19 vaccination for studio and artistic program participants. For your own safety as well as the safety of our community, we highly encourage all program participants to be up to date with their vaccinations for COVID-19 as well as the flu vaccine. We also encourage you to carry health and travelers insurance.
Studio and artistic program participants are required to show proof that they have received the complete Covid-19 vaccine (i.e., two weeks have passed after receiving the second dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer MRNA vaccines or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine). Additionally, if six months have passed since completing the Moderna or Pfizer series or two months have passed since receiving the J & J vaccine, then a booster is also required. Ideally the booster would have been administered at least two weeks prior to coming to Anderson Ranch. Click here for additional health and safety information.
