Second graders at Verne Critz had the unique opportunity to attend a silk screen printing workshop. This visiting artist day is funded through a South Country Education Grant written by our art teacher, Ms. Trentalange. Dan Kudreyko, a professional artist and educator who specializes in teaching serigraphy (silk screen printing) conducted the workshop. Together as a class the students were introduced to the art of silk screen printing and had the opportunity to create several individual prints. Second grade teachers collaborated on a curriculum based theme which will be marine animals. The students were excited to learn about silk screen printing!
