The Art of Collaboration

Collaborative print created by UCS Transitional Housing/ArtSpeak participants, April 2014

This is a very large, collaborative relief print created by me and two guys from United Caring Services who went the distance with my pilot arts empowerment program ArtSpeak. It was a true collaboration too — the foam print surfaces are by homeless folks who dropped in at Art at the Annex last fall, children at the local art/science museum at Thanksgiving, and us this spring. The best moment was the first print by the guy who had never done printmaking before. His hands shook. But before long he was printing with both confidence and precision.
