The ArtBound Program is offered to Newark High School students as a series of Sunday morning print sessions. It is our goal that students leave these workshops with hands-on experience in various printmaking techniques, creating artwork that is challenging, fun, and meaningful. Participating students learn basic bookbinding and non-toxic printmaking techniques, such as monoprinting, letterpress, intaglio and screenprinting. The program culminates with an exhibition displaying each student’s final artist book and prints. As a medium, bookmaking encourages the development of the personal voice with the means to express and share it. This program was initially offered in partnership with Index Art Center and with the generous assistance of the Newark Arts Council.
