This week Ms. Elizabeth's HS Art students enjoyed Japanese Woodblock printmaking workshops with UK artist Ralph Kiggell. Students learned the traditional Japanese method and produced two different prints including a two block art piece. Students had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed their experience. How lucky we were to have such a lovely visitor to TCIS!
