Are you artistic, or perhaps you want to be and keep searching for that creative part of yourself? Even if you’re not artistic, it’s still fun to try new things. Everyone can be creative!
This Saturday is the chance to do some hands-on printmaking and creative fun. Highpoint Center for Printmaking is located in Minneapolis, and just three times a year offers its Free Ink Day. If you’re curious what it is about, the next one is coming up this Saturday, July 16 from 12 – 4 pm.
Join us for this summer’s Free Ink Day! Create monotypes outdoors, surrounded by Highpoint’s rain gardens! Learn why rain gardens and Pollinators are important for our local environment.
This Free Ink Day we have a special guest: Erin Rupp of Pollinate MN teaching about pollinators with a honeybee hive. (Bees will be fully contained) And live musicians, Ryan Picone and Ben Abraham, playing flamenco and gypsy guitar styles from the Minnesota Guitar Society.
We will also have free ice cream via Sonny’s Ice Cream while supplies last. The event is zero waste with compostable wrappers and materials. All materials for the planned activity are non-toxic and supplied by Highpoint (while supplies last), and no registration is necessary – just drop in, bring your creativity, and be ready to get inky! Staff and volunteers will be able to answer any questions along the way.
Families, kids, adults, everyone is welcome! If there is bad weather, we will move the event inside, same day and time!
