More Than Words Show

When: On December 15th 2010 from 3:30 to 4:30
Where: At Silver Spring International School
Come and see the art work of the Art club at Silver Spring International School.
As part of the teaching- in- residence program, Trisha Gupta and Annie Albagli have been teaching an afterschool printmaking program.
"This semester we have been focusing on linocuts and negative and positive space. It is really great that the students have access to printmaking. When I was a student I did not even know what printmaking was. Printmaking really improves craft, encourages patience, and is so important to understanding reductive carving techniques. These skills really are valuable and help kids understand art better."
The more than words program is a breach from the page, when teaching traditional poetry. It allows kids to learn and read about poetry while working on art. After reading The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe, students talked about emotions and to evoke thoughts using visual imagery. These ideas evolved, and the kids have created work based off of their own experieneces. Come and see the show and support the kids.
