Community Based Class

This inter-institutional, intergenerational course provides an opportunity for participants to learn a new medium (we are creating mammoth woodcuts--4ft x 8ft and printing them with a steamroller), and work collaboratively with learners across the lifespan [the youngest is 11 and the oldest is 74] envisioning the concept of "freedom" or "lack of freedom" through visual imagery, stories, poems and oral interviews.

Corcoran art education students and UMD students in art education, English, and elementary education are partnered with members of the community and through discussion created a collaborative vision of freedom (or lack of) for their woodcut.
The four week course/project ends with a community print day in the parking lot at THEARC in SE Washington, DC
on Saturday, June 21 from 10am -2pm (rain date, Sunday, June 22)
