A Look Inside Our Printmaking Workshop

September 30, 2017 2 min read

Whenever someone walk’s into our shop, having never seen or heard of about what we are doing, most say the exact same thing: “What is this Place?”. They realize it is an art space for kids, but the surfaces that we have built and the inking stations with the brayers and the wall backdrop creates some initial confusion. Plus, the space is about 5,000 sq.ft. with different vantage points throughout - and a bit intimidating to a child when they first walk in. Here are a few panorama shots of the full shop.

These two panorama shots show the main workshop with collaborative art studio area, and our ‘drying room’, otherwise known as ‘the gallery”. Below are a series of other pics that show the workshop in action. We offer high-energy art studio sessions for kids, teaching them an art form that requires tools and techniques that are not always accessible to children of all ages. The prep and clean up is extensive, which is why parents seem to love our shop so much, because they don’t have to clean it up.

Below are a few shots showing a recent birthday party, with 35 kids plus parents. There were a lot of people in our shop this particular morning. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun. For a few minutes, at the point this first picture was taken, I was not sure if I would have control over the room and the kids, but then we settled down and everyone started working on their own individual projects - which was amazing.

Mia, is an 8 year old artist that came to a few of our workshops. This print was made at her very first visit to our shop. It took her about 1 hour to create and all of us here at Little Pulp love this print so much.

Today, my wife, two boys and I just went on our very first road trip in a long time - and I am writing this sitting in a hotel room in center of Syracuse. Tomorrow morning, we are driving about 30 miles north to pick up Bowie, our new Australian Labradoodle puppy. She is supposed to be hypo-allergenic, we’ll see what happens - but we’re keeping her no matter what.

Kids love working with the tools of printmaking. Inspired by these tools, I am always trying to create my own tools for drawing & painting and our workshop is a perfect testing ground, where kids use them and let me know what they like and what they don’t like.
