The Wagga Wagga Art Gallery are delighted to announce a new set of printmaking workshops for high school students. These workshops, conducted by Christina Reid, a well-known local print maker, presently teaching at TAFE, will give students the opportunities to move beyond the usual parameters of school art programs. Students will be building capacity and resilience for sustainable lifelong learning in the creative arts through these enriching and rewarding workshops that support their development through a slow creative process, but one that enables faster production of the final artworks.
At the conclusion of the workshops the students will leave with expanded creative knowledge and skills as well as a take home tool kit.
