The University of Olivet is providing a unique experience for high school students and their parents this spring. Printmaking has been a part of Olivet’s rich history for 90 years and the college recognizes the continued importance of including the practice and study of this medium in the visual arts curriculum.

This free relief printmaking workshop will be held on Saturday April 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for high school students and their parents. This Spring 2023 High School Art Camp is a productive and energetic exploration of printmaking.

Participants will be introduced to an overview of printmaking, will develop individual printing plates, work on printing presses and learn about the 90-year history of this art at The University of Olivet. The day will also include a brief tour of the campus and information on participation scholarship opportunities at The University of Olivet. All materials and lunch will be provided.

Students and parents are asked to bring the following supplies:

  • A 5″ x 7″ sketchbook and graphite pencils for executing preliminary studies.
  • 5″ x 7″ or smaller photographic images or drawings for subject matter.
  • An apron or work shirt.
