Sonia Rodriguez: Prints Writ Large

As we approach our tenth anniversary we’re delighted to feature the artwork of one of our own staff members, Circulation Assistant Sonia Rodríguez. In the previous five years Sonia has taught elementary school art for the Klein district. While at the Rhode Island School of Design, Sonia experienced working in a variety of media. Included in her display are a series of woodblock prints,etchings, and paintings depicting both human and animal nature.          

Most people who create woodblock prints print them in a hand operated press. The print you see in the image at left was created under a steam roller! Sonia thinks outside the box and is not afraid to experiment.

She currently continues her practice in an independent studio in Spring.

it also witnessed the power that images can carry.

Tattoo Playdough

 

Tattooed playdough making and dividing.

You should tattoo your play dough too.  This last Thursday here at the library we carefully tattooed our play dough with temporary tattoos. It was a lot of fun.  In the name of science we tried three different  home made dough recipes.   At the end of the day the Salt dough was the most popular. 

 A good time was had by all.  If you didn't get to join us and you now wish you had click on the links below to see the original recipes.  I hope you can enjoy them at home.  Join us next time at 10:30 am Thursday, January 23 for Taekwondo.
