Halloween Kitchen Lithography inspired by Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror
Fri, Oct 29, 2021
4 pm

Teens are invited to make “kitchen litho,” an alternative method of lithography using common at-home materials such as tin foil and soda, with the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. Learn the process, make your own plate, and print artwork inspired by Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror. The entire process is non-toxic and can be printed by hand.

We will explore the concepts of mirroring and doubling and consider the recurring images of skulls, abstract X-rays, and costumes that Johns often explores in his work. Join us to be creative in the Halloween spirit, and show up in your best costume to receive a surprise gift!
