Il Bisonte has several initiatives aimed at kids: many courses and workshops, both in our studios and as guests to schools, museums or associations.
In printmaking two are the things that are of great interest to the kids: first, the technical skill essential to the expression of the ideas, and consequently the direct correlation between technical knowledge and the quality of the final project; second, the necessary planning of work in a field where the object of creative action is not the final work but the instrument to realize it (the matrix).
Do not forget to take a look at our project Young Artists Art Printers, because in addition to knowing how to do the art is loved and collected!
