Working alongside Durrmu Arts with artist Regina Wilson, printmaker Annie Studd from Melbourne spent a week engaging local school kids from Peppimenarti and Emu Point in a printmaking workshop. Exploring the idea of identity each child had the opportunity to create a self-portrait using a combination of photography and lino-block printing.
With participants whose ages ranged from 5-12, the workshop gave chance for the young artists to explore colour, texture, new printmaking techniques as well as computer manipulation whilst generally get their hands dirty making art, experimenting and having fun.
The results of the workshop were proudly exhibited at Durrmu Arts on Thursday 27th September to coincide with the Naidoc Week celebrations that were hosted by Deewin Kirim. Here each print hung on the walls of the covered patio so children had a chance to see themselves. Both schools attended the celebrations. Also exhibited were examples of the Durrmu Arts artists lino prints done during the week.
