Last September I was invited to do an Artist-In-Residency at The Langley School just outside of Washington D.C. I taught fifty 7th graders printmaking and bookbinding. I knew once I arrived time was going to fly so in order to prep the students I had them do a few weekly assignments in their sketchbooks. Their theme revolved around identity. I wanted them to be able to get their hands dirty and not waste anytime brainstorming. Each student learned how to create a printing plate (collograph), print an edition, screen-print covers, use a typewriter, and sew a hand-bound book.
