In addition to being an artist in her own right, WPG Founding Member Nina Muys has taught art at Grace Episcopal Day School for the past 30 years. The love of printmaking is something that she tries to foster in children as young as Kindergarten and takes the art form up to 5th grade. Starting with the the lowly potato prints in the early ages, then advancing to glue prints and silkscreens, her students demonstrate the flexibility and surprise element of a creating a print. A large portion of the show is by the fourth grade class that worked on collograph prints of forest animals. The textured surface of the cardboard and color relationship is part of the final product. An example is pictured, below.
Alongside her students’ prints Nina will also have a portfolio of her own work on display. We encourage you to come out to the opening reception on Sunday, February 3 from 2-4 pm (Yes, that’s Superbowl Sunday but well before kick-off!). Details will be up soon on our new website!
