An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until August 7, 2024

Join us for a 5 part course with illustrator, printmaker, and educator Daniel Drennan ElAwar.
This five-session class provides an overview of relief printmaking in terms of the political postcard tradition and two-color linoleum print work. The postcard, often considered simple printed ephemera, in fact serves as an important historical printed record and archive of prevailing customs and culture, as well as resistance to dominant cultural norms. In this project, students will conduct photo and lettering research, design and carve linoleum blocks, and print a small run of simple two-color postcards.
Wednesday, 6-8 pm at The People’s Forum
