Street and Qualls demonstrated their technique for applying a large scale woodcut mural to a wall. Graduated students from the University of Arkansas, the Tamarind Institute and ASU, as well as professional artists, also gave demonstrations. Topics ranked from technical printmaking to more contemporary applications, including printing with fire, blood and cast concrete.
Lyon students Edmund Bork, '17, Hannah Del Angel, '18 and Kaitlyn Penn, '19, also attended the symposium alongside Dustyn Bork, associate professor of art.
The event conclude by celebrating the 21st DNSPE opening at the Bradbury Art Museum.
