Community Arts Center. This was the project I developed for the teaching portion of my teaching artist fellowship at the Community Arts Center's Summer Spree camp. The project was largely inspired by Maria Arango-Diener's puzzle print projects, the last of which I participated in. That work - the Peace Puzzle Woodcut, featuring work by 160 artists from around the world - was displayed in the gallery, and I used it as a visual aid to explain the project to the campers.
The finished work was completed and installed today by 68 campers (ages 4-11) with one amazing aid and a few helpful teen volunteers. It will be on exhibit through July 20, alongside the Summer Fellows Exhibit which includes all the artwork for the Nautilus and the Ammonite, selections from other books projects, some of my related ceramics, and of course the Peace Puzzle Woodcut.

here and here.) I wanted to have something to trade with the students in exchange for copies of their lovely work. I printed different versions and am letting them pick which one they want to keep.

Community Arts Center. None of the students had made a woodcut before, and the class is short (5 days, 1.5 hours a day) so this is a rather intense introduction for them. Day one I showed them some example woodcuts, had them draw right onto their boards, demonstrated how to use the knives and gouges, and they got to work carving. Today they finished the first proofs of their first cuts. Not too shabby! I'll be posting the rest of their work as the week progresses.

A small spider dangles from a bit of web stuck to an index finger. In a moment the bug will land on the foliage beside it and crawl away into the folds of the leaves, and the person will serenely watch them go.
