We are Extending through the Summer
The Shops at Atlas Park, 8000 Cooper Avenue, Glendale, NY 11385

We are extending our workshop through the summer months, transforming a 4,000 sq.ft. storefront, at THE SHOPS at ATLAS PARK, into a collaborative art & printmaking workshop for kids and their adults. Our weekend sessions are suitable for all ages (we have had 17 months through 17 year olds) coming together for 2-1/2 hours of fun, messy, hands-on printmaking. We all work together on a few large-scale collaborative art pieces and everyone (including adults) works on their own printmaking projects. With our help, you and your children will create your very own prints on our “Kid-friendly Printing Press”, which we have built ourselves. CLICK HERE WITH QUESTIONS

What we Have Planned
Each weekend session will begin with a quick welcome warm up on our Doodle Bar. The group will then be introduced to the art of printmaking with a fun and messy large-scale multi-media piece combining drawing, painting, papier-mâché, collage and other techniques that will be worked on throughout the 2-1/2 hour session. Each child and adult will have the chance to work on two individual printmaking projects, the first is a foam etching process, followed by a series of “ghost prints” (to be explained at the shop). The second project uses a monoprinting technique where everyone will ink up an acrylic sheet and then use a variety of tools to create texture, shape and linework to create a unique, one-of-a-kind print. Everyone will have the opportunity to print on our home-made ‘kid-friendly’ Printing Press which the children will be able to operate (think of it as a giant rolling pin that well move across a platform). Printmaking is a collaborative art form that embraces the 'happy accident' and requires the use of very cool tools, which we hope, the children will enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Our Weekend Collaborative Art/Printmaking Sessions
Each weekend session is 2-1/2 hours (suggested age 2-1/2 years and up). We’ll begin each session with a large-scale collaborative multi-media piece, introducing the printmaking techniques and tools that will be used to create your own prints.
 
Toddler Studio Weekdays (10:30am–1:00pm)
Looking for something to do with your little one while the older kids are in school? On Wednesdays and Fridays, from 10:30am-1:00pm, we’re opening our workshop for toddlers (18 months - 4 years). Each day we’ll be working on different projects ranging from painting, hand/foot prints, 3-dimensional painting, printmaking suitable for this age group, paper marbling and other sensory art projects. The session costs $30 and you can bring a additional sibling at this rate. Here is our Toddler Weekdays schedule:

We will also be setting up after-school classes and a few special age-specific classes on weekday afternoons. If you would like more information, please CLICK HERE TO EMAIL US. We hope to see you there.
