Printmaking Workshop for Children Planned

In conjunction with its current exhibition, Keys to the Koop: Humor and Satire in Contemporary Printmaking, a workshop for children is planned for Saturday, Oct. 2, from noon to 4 pm in the lobby of the Hallie Ford Museum of Art at Willamette University. Graduate students from the School of Education will introduce children and their parents to a wide variety of simple printmaking processes. Admission is free.

Keys to the Koop: Humor and Satire in Contemporary Printmaking features the work of 16 printmakers who find humor and satire in contemporary art, fashion, food, religion, politics, and popular culture. The exhibition continues through Oct. 30 in the Melvin Henderson-Rubio Gallery. Admission to the exhibition will be free the day of the workshop.

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is located at 700 State Street (corner of State and Cottage Streets) in downtown Salem near the campus of Willamette University. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The galleries are closed on Sunday and Monday. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for seniors and students.
