Art in the Park: Fish Prints

Fish Prints

July 21, 2022

3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Greene Block + Studios

Dive in and print with us! Originally used by Japanese fisherman to record their catches, discover the time-honored printmaking technique called Gyotaku. Try out this celebrated form of art and nature printing by using a life-sized rubber fish to create your own aquatic-themed prints.

Book: “Beneath the Waves” by Lily Murray

Art in the Park is back! Once again, Waterville Creates has joined forces with the Waterville Public Library and the Colby College Museum of Art to offer dynamic, creative summer programming to provide arts experiences for all. This season will kick off with a new summer reading series and will have lots of engaging arts activities each week. Special guests will include practicing artists, local musicians, and area teachers!

Each Thursday participants at Art in the Park will create works based on a book or community theme. Watch a “how to” project demonstration, then make your own creation at Head of Falls, the large, open, green space located in downtown Waterville adjacent to the historic Kennebec River.

Each week, a book will be read aloud to participants as they build and create. Bring a blanket or chair to get comfortable while listening and creating. This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience.

Thank you to our Art in the Park sponsors, Colby Arts & Humanities, Kennebec Savings Bank, and Pro Moving Service.

Due to severe weather in the forecast this event has been moved to Greene Block + Studios.
