Schedule: Thursdays, 4-5:30 pm (1.5 hrs) Session Dates: Dec 7, 14 (2 sessions) Grades: 6-12th In this short two-week workshop students will use different printmaking techniques to create greeting cards they can share with their friends and loved ones during the upcoming holiday season. No matter which holidays you celebrate this will be a fun opportunity to create your own personalized greetings using different traditional techniques. Students will carve their own block prints using easy-to-cut blocks, try printing with a traditional printing press, and experiment with some low-prep screen printing. All levels are welcome. Instruction is provided to meet each student's individual interests, needs, and strengths. Bio: Yael Levy is a mixed media artist, storyteller, printmaker, and art teacher based in Berkeley, CA. She draws, paints, collages, and writes. She often self-publishes her work, and sometimes prints and binds it by hand. She loves playing with forms and formats and mixing digital and tactile techniques. Most of Yael’s work is based on her own experience as a brown, bi-racial, bilingual, and bisexual woman. She also enjoys telling others’ stories, making up imaginary creatures, and just painting images of beautiful nature. She believes the creative process to be its own reward and the act of making an incredible tool for healing and growing. Born and raised in Israel, Yael completed her BFA in Illustration at Parsons School of Design and MFA in Comics at CCA (2017).
