Alynn Guerra & Winter Break Camp!

Alynn Guerra is quite the celebrity artist in Grand Rapids. Her prints are bold and whimsical, transporting the viewer to a simpler world. Alynn is literally a neighbor to the Cook Arts Center, running her Red Hydrant Press studio just around the corner. Read more about Alynn's work. Grandville Avenue Arts and Humanities' students were very lucky to have special guest teacher Alynn Guerra for their winter break camp!

During the winter break camp, GAAH students learned about different types of printmaking, and went to the GRAM to see the print exhibit and their permanent print collection.
Students did a technique called relief printmaking by carving rubber plates, and also created crayon monoprints.
Winter break was filled with fun, creativity, and new artistic skills. Thanks Alynn!
