The CSUN Art Department in collaboration with the California Art Education Association (Southern) held smART Day on Saturday, October 15. The morning began with a keynote address by Theresa Sotto, the education specialist at the Getty museum, followed by art workshops for art educators.
My workshop covered relief printmaking approaches for all ages, with assistance by CSUN undergraduate student Miles.
