On July 23, 2019, Ariel Foster, a multidisciplinary artist running The Parlour on St. Paul, visited our Mixed Media Team at the BYA Studio. During her day here, she taught the team linoleum block printing her way. Typically, a printing press is needed in order to transfer the design from the linoleum block to the material being printed on, but Ariel prefers to use stepping and dancing instead. Her Ritmo Studio project uses the body, i.e. dancing, as an element in the printing process - which is exactly what she had our young people do!
Throughout the day, the entire team printed on various different surfaces and even came together at the end to create a collage of all their designs on yellow fabric!
