POW @ the Boys and Girls Club in Kenosha

On June 28th CCR's Press On Wheels made a stop at the Boys and Girls Club of Kenosha where we conducted a drypoint workshop for  10 to 20 kids.  It was an exciting event with the kids getting inky and others wanting in on the opportunity to learn and experience printmaking.

Thanks to the enthusiastic support of artist Julia Schiller for facilitating this workshop.

Julia provided us with a few photographs of the workshop.  

 If you are interested in having CCR's POW visit your community let us know.

The first drawing of the inside of our 2000 ford E350 POW vehicle

Can you imagine your logo somewhere on the side or back of the truck?  Our sponsors' logos will appear on the truck.

 Get in on the fun!!!
 And it begins; the raw space, the blank canvas. This is the interior of our POW vehicle.

When complete, we will be able to bring drypoint, relief, screen printing, and papermaking to you, wherever you are!

Got any ideas? 
Contact us. 

We are taking Print and Papermaking 
on the road.

Jack Kerouac, here we come!
