Using the exhibition Seven Masters: Japanese Woodblock Prints as inspiration, educators will explore the history and process of the ancient art of printmaking. This interactive professional development workshop will include a gallery tour and exhibition discussion as well as a presentation of cross-curricular activities with LRMA Curators.

Activities will align to state standards and CEU credits will be offered.
