Six Oak Hills Art and Design students were recently selected to participate in the High School Printmaking Intensive designed to expose high school students to professional printmaking practices at Tiger Lily Press with Artist and Art Educator Eric Brass. The program to be piloted was conceived of by former OHHS Art Teacher and Department Chair Jan Thomas, who served as the Tiger Lily Press Education Chair.
The curriculum is designed to expose the students to a variety of printmaking techniques while making use of the professional-grade Tiger Lily Press studio equipment. The goal of the program is to familiarize the student with studio life, infuse interest in printmaking as an art form, and expose the student to new disciplines by which to creatively express their ideas.
Congratulations to the following OHHS Art and Design students who were selected to participate in this year’s class:
