With a grant from the Linden Center for Creativity and Aging, Ithaca College Gerontology Institute and the Community Arts Partnership, this workshop series is geared toward older adults 65 years of age and older, based on the theme of "Generations".  You will learn more about printmaking techniques, reflect on what "generations" means to you, and interpret this theme in original prints, culminating in a small exhibit and reception at The Ink Shop.  Limit to 8 participants.
