Description
Umbrella Studio contemporary arts in partnership with Gallery Services Townsville City Council launched the Young Indigenous Printmakers program. The program will engage over 150 Indigenous students in 2014 seeking to foster and promote artistic development with local Indigenous high school students. Students work with professional printmaking artists in a professional print studio to produce a series of prints for exhibition at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery, Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts and The Galleria, Riverway Arts Centre. High School students spend one day at school with Indigenous artists, Gail Mabo, Tommy Pau or Aicey Zaro on concept development and designs for their artworks and are introduced to the medium of relief printmaking. The students further explore their Indigenous heritage and some incorporate this into their designs. Following this, students participated in a one-day intensive print workshop at the Umbrella Studio contemporary arts studio space with Townsville master printmaker Jo Lankester. The students produce and print an edition of four linocuts. A selection of prints was exhibited by Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF) in 2014 and will be again in 2015.
