Copy of Teens Open Art Studio: Woodcuts!

Communication invites local teens to join local artist Sara Meredith for our FREE after-school workshop series! From 4-5:30pm every Wednesday in September, workshop students will work on making their own woodcuts and creating items they can use in everyday life.

Students will learn how to design and cut their own woodcut and how to print their woodcut on a variety of upcycled materials, like book pages, maps, pillowcases and more. We'll go one step further and turn some of those printed materials into other products, like stickers, magnets, iron- on patches and more.

If there is time we will also explore how to create and print collagraphs using natural and found objects, which is an additive process.

In 2015 she left her printing job to pursue a full-time career as an artist. She has since exhibited in several galleries, markets and small businesses in the Midwest. She has taught a range of art classes for all ages at Arts + Literature Laboratory, Common Ground- Middleton, Matrix Coworking, Goodman Community Center ( in collaboration with Community Unity Arts ) and many other local businesses.
