Midcoast Printmakers, Inc. received a Community Grant to sponsor printmaking workshops for members of the community. The first group was the Big Brothers Big Sisters that met Tuesday, Dec. 17 at the Great Salt Bay Community School in Damariscotta. Dick and Kay Miller demonstrated a relief printing method using styrofoam to make impressions on art paper. The younger students worked with their high school counterparts to create beautiful cards for their family and friends.

Other printmaking sessions will take place in January with other groups.

The Printmakers have recently moved to 648 Main St. in Damariscotta. New classes for January will be announced soon, along with a gala grand opening party.
