Ms. Stephanie E. Spencer, Director of The Printmaking Council of New Jersey

Ever wonder how a print is made? Unlike paintings which clearly display the hand of the artist with each brush stroke, prints don't reveal the materials used to create the image. Ms. Stephanie E. Spencer, Director of The Printmaking Council of New Jersey, will speak about printmaking techniques and the formation of the Council. Learn about this creative center that promotes interaction among artists through exhibitions and education, especially through the Roving Press education program that provides on-site arts education to schools and organizations throughout the state.
