Arts at Lawrence, "I Can!"

January 30, 2008

by Janet Ulm

A booklet making workshop was held on Wednesday, January 23rd at Lawrence Education Center. The workshop was made possible through a generous grant received from the Springfield Public School Foundation. The workshop was taught by Madeline White of Praire Art Stamps.

Students were shown the methods and tools used to make stamped booklets. Also, chalk highlights could be added to enhance the stamped image. There were five stamp themes available: Snowflakes, Flowers, Butterflies, Fish, and Leaves. The students stamped their booklets with designs. Then the students had the option of stamping inspirational sayings or handwriting their own words.

The workshop provided a new art experience for the students. Also, it provided a chance to express their own creativity and written thoughts.
