Woodcuts by Dean DiPrinzio

 These are two versions of a woodcut by Dean DiPrinzio, a student I've taught four summers during the Summer Spree Art Camp of the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, PA. He's now in 6th grade and it seems art is this kid's life. With the support of his parents, especially his dad Michael DiPrinzio who is also an artist, he's quick to tell people that he exhibits and sells his work. Here's a link to an article about one of their shows.

This summer I asked Dean if he's ever made a woodcut, and he hadn't, so brought him a 3" x 4" shina plywood block and some carving tools, and he made this great little print. I hope he frames the two versions together and exhibits them somewhere soon.
