Charles White believed that "art should take its place as one of the necessities of life," and used his skill as a printmaker to make images that would reach as many people as possible.

In that spirit, these workshops invite participants to make their own drypoint prints in response to White's innovative work in the medium. Each session is led by an artist and planned in collaboration with the EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop whose founder, Robert Blackburn, was White's primary printer in New York.

Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign-up begins an hour prior to each workshop. While designed for adult participants, children ages 12 and older are welcome if accompanied by an adult.

This event is free and open to the public.
