Printmaking with the MFA for Teens | January 24

On Friday, January 24, 2014, between the hours of 4 – 5pm, the Codman Square Branch of the Boston Public Library will host the Printmaking with the MFA for Teens at 690 Washington Street in Dorchester.

There are more ways to work with ink on paper than simply with a paintbrush or pen. Led by educators from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, discover the art of printmaking, a process allowing multiple copies of the same image to be created – design, engrave, print and repeat.

This event is free and is open to teens, ages 13-18.

This Out-of-school Time program is sponsored by the Boston Public Library Foundation.
