Creating Art with Nature

Hey, adults!  Discover the art of nature printmaking, a process in which an object (leaf or flower, for instance) is pressed into a plane surface to make a direct printing surface or matrix.  Learn how to transfer the beauty found in nature into art with a nature printmaking workshop for adults at the North Branch Area Library.

Minnesota artist and contemporary printmaker Michael Weatherly will be leading the program, scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, July 15. Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. Sign up at the library or call 651-674-8443 and ask for the North Branch Area Library.  Presented by the East Central Regional Library, this project is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
