On Sunday afternoon, January 25, learn from local artist Amy DiPlacido as you use fruits and vegetables to create a pattern on napkins inspired by Indian Block Printing. Participants will be encouraged to mix their own colors and create relief prints by stamping - instead of using the traditional woodblock, students may use broccoli, lemons, onions, and even carved potato to make unique patterns.
Amy DiPlacido's work has been exhibited throughout the U.S., including solo exhibitions at Lynn Arts, The Monongalia Art Center, and The Holzwasser Gallery. Her work has been accepted into The Art Farm, Art 342 Residency, and the Vermont Studio Center. She is also the owner of the small business, The Dear Dyery, which specializes in hand dyed clothing and accessories. Amy earned her BFA at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2007, and her MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2009.
Cafe UTEC will be closed during the workshop, so food will not be available for purchase. Light snacks will be provided.
Spots are limited, so reserve yours today! The $25 workshop fee is due upon advance registration, so that we know how many participants to expect. The $10 materials fee can be paid upon registration or by cash/check/card on the 25th.
When & Where
UTEC's mission is to ignite and nurture the ambition of our most disconnected young people to trade violence and poverty for social and economic success. UTEC was founded in 1999 by young people driven to develop their own teen center in response to gang violence. Today, UTEC’s nationally recognized model begins with intensive street outreach and gang peacemaking, reaching our most disconnected youth “where they’re at.” UTEC engages youth through workforce training in social enterprises, alternative education, and intensive case management. Social justice and civic engagement are embedded throughout programming, with special emphasis in our organizing and policymaking work.
