Truro, MA – Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill invites the community to the 5th Annual “Steamroller Print Extravaganza” taking place on Saturday, September 14 from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM. This is a free community event for people of all ages.
“Steamroller printmaking” is a technique for making very large prints using an actual steamroller as the printing press. Watch as giant prints are created using the Edgewood Farm driveway as a press bed. Create your own prints and bring them with you to have them pressed on site. Ink, brayers, paper, and industrial equipment will be provided.
As an added bonus, this year there will be a live miniature unicorn on site (possibly 2!). Children are invited to paint a picture of the unicorn, while it is modeling for you as well as paint the Unicorn with washable non toxic unicorn paint! This first ever and not to be missed event!
“This event is a fun way to bring people of all ages closer to the printmaking process by allowing them to participate in the art of printmaking on a grand scale,” says Cherie Mittenthal, Castle Hill’s Executive Artistic Director. “Not to mention the Unicorn Extravaganza!!”
This event is supported in part by a grant from the Wellfleet Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
