Free Ink Day at Highpoint Center for Printmaking

Highpoint and the Open Eye Figure Theater present a day of printing and puppetry for all ages. Visit Highpoint’s studio to make colorful monoprints to take home, and then enjoy a performance of “Tucker’s Robot” presented by the Open Eye Figure Theatre’s Driveway Tour.

Four times a year Highpoint invites the community to an afternoon of hands-on printmaking and creative fun. At these free, public events visitors of all ages can drop in anytime during the afternoon to make prints to take home. Since 2002 Free Ink Days have been an opportunity for the community to create unique, hand made artwork. All materials for the planned activity are supplied by Highpoint (and are non-toxic), and no registration is necessary – just drop in anytime during the afternoon, bring your creativity, and be ready to get inky! Staff and volunteers will be able to answer any questions along the way. Past activities have included monoprinting and relief block printing, and have incorporated themes such as Día de los Muertos, Intergalactic Ink, and Prints and Puppetry.
