Students explore traditional art form through state grant
Posted on 04/01/2021
Eisenhower art students will have a greater opportunity to newly explore an old traditional form of art, thanks to new print making equipment made possible by a state grant.
 
The school has been awarded a $1,500 state arts grant to purchase a new printing press.
 
The grant, awarded to art teachers Josephine Braun and Nancy Druia, will allow students to use multiple printmaking art techniques and explore printmaking processes.
 
“This opportunity for students could lead to a viable career in the arts in printmaking and processes,” Druia said. “All levels of students will have access and find success.”
 
Every Eisenhower art student will have access to the press.  In addition, students will now have the ability to use this art medium to enter different categories for competitions. 
 
The grant was provided through the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs’ mini grant program.
 
In addition to purchasing the printing press, the grant will fund replacement of shelves for the department’s kiln.
