Event description

Description

Have you ever wanted to print your own artwork or cards? In this class, with a few simple tools, you will learn how to carve printing blocks and make multiples of your designs. You will leave with either an edition of your own artwork or a set of hand printed cards, as well as the knowledge to work on more projects at home.

This class will provide all the tools you will need to get started, as well as acid free printing paper and envelopes. You are welcome to bring additional papers to print on, or your own home printing projects. This class is for both beginners and advanced printers. Experimentation and multiple blocks will be encouraged.

  • In addition to your donation here, please bring a $10 materials fee with you to class, either in cash or check.

  • This workhop is an open studio format; you do not need to stay for the full time.

  • This class can accomodate younger ages - please email the instructor brooke.toczylowski@ousd.org to let her know.

  • Coffee, drinks, and light snacks are provided. Plan on bringing a bagged lunch to eat during break to maximize your artmaking time.

  • If you would like to have your company match your donation please email me - brooke.toczylowski@ousd.org - instead of donating here.

100% of your donation (recommended $30 - $150) will go to the the OIHS Opening Doors Scholarship, which financially supports graduating seniors who plan on attending college.

About Our School
Oakland International High School opened it's doors in 2007. Our school is part of the International Network of Public Schools, serving some of highest needs and newest members of our local community. Our school serves close to 400 students from over 30 countries who are immigrants and English Language Learners. Many of these students come to the US as refugees and unaccompanied minors escaping harm and persecution. We are honored to provide rigorous instruction and support services to these wonderful and inspirational human beings.

Most of our students are the first in their family to graduate from high school and go to college. Financial aid and scholarships are instrumental in making our students' college dreams a reality.

Your Support
Our school would not be able to provide the services and support available to students without the tremendous generosity of community members, volunteers, and donors. Your donation will go directly to providing a one time scholarship to a current OIHS senior who will be attending a 2 or 4 year college.

Your contribution will help fund the college dreams to one of our newest Americans. Your donation will help ensure that students have a more successful transition into college life. This is also a valuable investment in our local community on your behalf.
