The first Authors and Artists program of the new year featured guest artist Seth Caplan, who transformed the Bushwick Library in a print shop.
After a brief discussion about monsters, the kids were invited to sketch a fanciful beast. For further inspiration, Norte Maar Director Jason Andrew read the classic book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Next Seth demonstrated a technique whereby the kids transferred their drawing onto Styrofoam for printing. “Lino cuts a la styrofoam and pencils,” cried Seth. Let the printing begin!
The end results were astonishing!
