Adventures in Printmaking Camp

Monday–Friday
9am–12pm, July 11–July 15

Ages 11–17

Leslie_Moon3Instructor: Leslie Nan Moon

There are more ways to work with ink on paper than simply with a paintbrush or pen. Printmaking will literally show you how to make your mark on the world. Use your hands, your thoughts, and new skills to give your unique voice a new form of expression.

Especially designed for tweens and teens and with no previous experience necessary. Taught by Leslie Nan Moon, teens will discover the art of relief printmaking, a process allowing multiple copies of the same image to be created – design, carve, print and repeat.  L.Moon_Chine Colle

Leslie Nan Moon is an experienced and award-winning printmaker, nationally published illustrator and arts educator. She will help you become a proud printmaker, showing off new capabilities with confidence, laughing and learning all the way.

Please bring a nut-free snack and labeled water bottle to each class.

Optional Lunch Bunch available from 12-1pm. Cost is $10. (If enrolling in both AM & PM camps, then Lunch Bunch fee is waived). Please bring a nut–free bag lunch.

Artist’s Statement

My painting reveal themselves through layers of paint in an intuitive process that involves play, experimentation and a belief that everything unfolds as it should. My personal style embraces imperfections and values the presence of handmade quality, which breathes energy and soulfulness into each piece. Yoga is an intrinsic practice that allows my creativity to flow onto the canvas with joy and ease as my body stays open and attuned to inspiration. By painting more with my entire body and less in my mind, I am able to surrender to the creative wellspring within.
