Going Home Again

Posted on November 20th, 2014

You don’t get to ” go home again” too often, but I had the pleasure and privilege of teaching printmaking at the Kingswood-Oxford School in West Hartford Ct. recently, a school where my first art teacher befriended and encouraged me. Returning to amazing new facilities, and working with their gifted teacher and printmaker, Katherine Nicholson,  I taught Middle and High School students, the age I was back then. It brought me full circle. We had a furiously creative 3 days making collagraph and intaglio plates, and printing some of the stunning results you see here. It meant a lot to me to be able to pass on my knowledge of nontoxic and creative printing techniques to bright, inquisitive students at the school that educated me. Give and take, risking the new, welcoming the surprise of the printmaking process- all good!
