A New Printmaker Finds Her Wings

After a whole-group “5-minute demo” on how to make a multi-color reduction print, this 7 ½ year old artist crafted a 3-color image titled: Beauty Parrot. This was her second attempt. The first day, using the same plate, her inking was unsatisfactory (to her). She returned for the next class and was able to produce this crisp image during one class period. During the following class, she worked with this process one more time, creating a holiday image, which currently has two colors. I suspect she will return to this print next time, and add at least one more color.
