April 24th-28th, 2017

This week is all about finishing our prints.  The Checklist of prints due are listed below.  On Monday I will explain briefly what makes an experimental print.  The goal is to make as many interesting and creative prints as you can.  

I will also be speaking with some students on Monday who needed to figure out more about their Bonanza projects.  There is an Open Studio on Tuesday where students may work.  There will also be, at minimum, 2 more open studios in the next 2 weeks.  The dates and times will be determined in the next couple of days.
