• Virtual After School Art Club- Printmaking with Styrofoam is set to begin at 3 p.m. Thursday, April 30 on Facebook.

Inspired by work from artists in the Maine Aomori Printmaking Society, participants can make fun and simple art prints you can use to decorate the home or office. Recycle some of that Styrofoam usually discarded from store packaging and transform it into great art.

Supplies: Styrofoam, scissors, markers, a stamp pad (bonus not necessary), paper, and a pencil.

Join us on our Common Street Arts Facebook Page for this free virtual After School Art Club Facebook Live event with Serena Sanborn. Share your art with us on our Facebook Page or online using the hashtag #ArtAtHome.
