Kay Douglas is an artist and educator who uses historical narratives to bring individuals together for constructive conversations rooted in race, history, and privilege. In this workshop, visitors will create portraits of Black leaders in US history through a relief printmaking technique. Carve your image into a Styrofoam block and make or select stamps for your batik-inspired background. Then, ink your block and apply the portraits and patterns to paper for your finished work of art.
