Try your hand at this unique art technique!

Block printing is a popular printmaking technique that started in China more than a thousand years ago. In this program, we will use two techniques to carve pictures into foam blocks, which makes “stamps” that can be coated with ink and pressed onto paper to produce a print. Recommended for ages 4+. 

Prepare: Dress for the weather (sturdy shoes and layers recommended) and bring water. No registration required.

Meet: In the picnic area of the park. If driving from park HQ, pass the pool and take your first right-hand turn into the picnic area parking lot.

Fees: The class is free with paid entry to the park. Regular park entrance fees are $3/adult, free for children 12 & under.
