Educator Workshop: Lautrec and the Cult of Celebrity Printmaking & Exhibition Visit

October 6, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Before so many people became mini t.v. producers on social media, there was the medium of lithography. Join us for a hands-on interdisciplinary workshop in connection with the exhibition, The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec. With the spotlight on the star performers of late-19th-century Paris so memorably captured in Lautrec’s prints and posters, we’ll consider how celebrity has evolved with technological change. Award-winning printmaker and NHIA faculty member Bill Cass will lead the conversation with Museum Educator and Lead Interpreter Ann Bible, who will facilitate a visit to the exhibition. The afternoon session will take place at NHIA and feature a demonstration of lithography and the Japanese woodblock printing process inspiring Lautrec. Workshop attendees will leave with their own lithograph (no experience or supplies necessary!) and a workbook of ideas for the classroom. For K-12 art, history, science, French, English, and music teachers (all teachers welcome). Professional development hours provided. Limited to 20 participants. Registration required: $105 or $95 for members. One hour for lunch – feel free to bring your own or purchase lunch in our café
