This Earth Day, Children's Museum of the Arts Artist in Residence Ciana Malchione teams up with Queens-based children’s art organization Art Strong to lead an Earth Day Printmaking Workshop for kids ages 4-10.
Children will make a series of collagraph prints thematically related to Earth Day. They will use recycled materials like cardboard, bubble wrap and string to make printing plates, considering nature and how we care for it when making their designs. Once the printing plates are finished, children will produce a series of prints using different colors and layers, reusing their designs just as they reused materials! This is a simple and fun process that can easily be repeated at home.
Programs at Children's Museum of the Arts are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
