Join printmaker, Mei-Ling Ellerman, to learn to
design, draw, carve, and print your own beautiful
Lunar New Year work of art! The Year of the Rat
will start January 25 th on the first new moon, and
celebrations run for 15 days till the first full moon.
If you celebrate the Asian Lunar New Year, your
print may include elements such as a rat, cherry
blossoms, Chinese characters, the moon etc.
If you simply wish to create a Lunar New Year
block print, you may choose your own theme, for
example, a moon and wildlife such as a wolf. Mei-
Ling will offer guidance and instructions
throughout, and no prior art experience is needed.
You will bring home up to 15 printed cards and
envelopes, your 4”x6” carved block, and up to 10
prints on heavy paper which you can give as gifts for the New Year!
