Highlights from Our Subsidized Workshop with Arts of Life

Spudnik Press had the pleasure of hosting a special subsidized workshop with Arts of Life and it was a fantastic success! The event brought together artists and community members for an afternoon filled with creativity, learning, and camaraderie.

Led by Spudnik Press teaching artist Anders Zanichkowsky, participants from Arts of Life eagerly dove into the hands-on activities, exploring the intricate process of monotype printing. The energy in the studio was contagious as everyone experimented with different tools and materials, creating their own unique prints to take home.

The turnout for the workshop was truly heartwarming. The positive energy and the sense of accomplishment in the air were palpable as everyone proudly displayed their finished prints. Relive the joyful atmosphere and see the incredible artworks that were created.
