It is very rare that a museum will let you touch their exhibits let alone allow you to operate them, but that is what the Printing Museum is up to with its 2nd Annual Kids Krazy Krafts Day. Located in the South Bay area, the International Printing Museum is a destination in the city of Carson.
This day-long event promises to be a unique introduction for ‘short’ people (kids!) and ‘Big’ people (parents and guardians) to learn and appreciate the Book Arts and Graphic arts in general.
Two guest artists from Los Angeles will be on hand as well. Yoshika Oishi will be demonstrating outstanding paper sculpting (origami) and Janet Martorello will be showing the paper making process of Suminagashi – an ancient art of paper marbling that simply has to be seen to appreciate its beauty.
Other artists will be utilizing their skills in Printing, Papermaking, Cartooning, Calligraphy and Silkscreening. On offer are all day ‘hands on’ activities and demonstrations in Printing, Paper-making, Cartooning, Paper Sculpting as well as mini-tours of the museum’s marvelous collection.
Bring a T-shirt for some Silk Screening Art and other surprises!
