Feb 18
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm (drop-in)

Drop-in from 12-5 pm and get inky with your family at SNAP Printshop this Family Day!

Bring along your kiddos, grandmother, uncle, cousin, step-sister, in-laws, or anyone you consider your family to screenprint an edition of fun illustrations. Pick from a wide range of illustrations and drawings made by local Edmonton artists and designers for your edition of screenprints. Then, use rollers, ink, lino blocks, and stamps to embellish and fill in your printed images to use as colouring pages. There will also be a colouring station set up if you wish to spend the whole day being creative and colourful!

There will be a variety of age-appropriate activities for young children to teens to adults. Everyone can have fun printing at SNAP during the first ever Family Day Printmaking Event!

$15 at the door for 3 prints of the same illustration

*This is an all ages event, but please note that anyone under the age of 18 needs to be supervised by an adult. For safety reasons SNAP recommends a 1:1 child to guardian ratio for children under 8 in our Printshop. 

 

Please note that participants will not be printing their own drawings or illustrations, but choosing from a selection of pre-made stencils. Participants will have the opportunity to choose their ink colours and to individualize their screenprints after at the stamping/relief station and by colouring.

The screen-printing activity takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Participants can stay to stamp or print on top of their illustrations or to colour them in, this can take approximately 30 to 60 minutes.
