Please join the Mesquite Arts Council as they welcome local artist Matt Bagley and his company Iron Frog Press to instruct our Just For Kids event on July 15 at 10 AM at the Downtown Mesquite Farmers Market (100 W. Front Street). Learn about the printmaking process and make small prints! Participants will learn a brief history of the process and use a variety of objects to make linoleum and woodcut prints. The prints will be developed and washed on-site.
PrintShop a Go-Go™ is a fun free, portable, go-anywhere print shop that can teach printmaking to people of all ages and skill levels. It is an educational outreach program developed by Matt Bagley of Iron Frog Press. Matt Bagley has been actively making prints for the past 30 years. He created Iron Frog Press, a Dallas-based fine art press dedicated to helping artists achieve their visions through relief prints. However, he is best known internationally for his invention, the Print Frog® Glass Baren™, which has quickly become a "must-have" tool for every print shop. If you are interested in learning more about Matt Bagley, please check out his social media.
