Bind a journal from your own collection of suminagashi marbled papers. Dating back some 800 years, this Japanese marbling technique floats ink pigments atop a liquid bath. With gentle manipulations — such as blowing across the surface of the water — and a good deal of spontaneity, patterns form and are transferred to paper. In this one-day workshop, you’ll leave with inspiration for your own art, and tons of ideas for classroom projects and adaptations for students.

Additional information: Thanks to a generous grant from the Memorial Foundation, the Watkins College teacher programs provide free professional development opportunities for K-12 educators to engage in hands-on artmaking activities and develop strategies for incorporating thematic and contemporary ideas, projects, and techniques into curricula. These programs are a chance for educators to rejuvenate their creative juices in a community of peers while developing new skills for themselves and ideas for the classroom.

Cost: Free for K-12 art teachers
