Mar 5, 2013, 18:03
Print making and sculpture will be the focus of an art workshop hosted by Bay High School's art club for children ages 5 to 12. The workshop will take place on Saturday, March 9, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at the Catchie Crider Fine Arts Building at Bay High School. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. The cost of the program is $10, and proceeds go towards art club activities and supplies.
Children will make block-style prints in the style of Walter Anderson, a well-known Ocean Springs artist whose work is now in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Museum. They will also make Gyotaku prints, a traditional form of Japanese fish rubbing dating from the mid 1800s that began as a type of nature printing used by fishermen to record their catches. In addition to printmaking, participants will make sculptures from stone or clay.
