Arts and Education Program

 

In conjunction with the exhibition Limited Editions: Joseph Holston Prints, 1974-2010, A Retrospective, the David C. Driskell Center developed an Arts and Education Program in collaboration with Suitland High School in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The Driskell Center organized a workshop with artist Joseph Holston on January 14, 2011. Holston demonstrated the process of collagraphy, a printmaking technique in which materials, such as wallpaper, lace, bubble wrap, and others, are applied to a rigid substrate, e.g. cardboard or heavy dampened paper. The printing process was done using a printing press. About twenty students from Suitland High School participated in the workshop and, inspired by Holston’s painting Still Life with Oranges, 1975, created individual works of art. Six students’ works are presented at the Driskell Center.

 

The Arts and Education Program is supported, in part, by a grant from the Prince George’s Arts Council.
