Free Ink Day at Highpoint Center for Printmaking
Four times a year the Highpoint Center for Printmaking opens its doors and invites visitors to create a piece of art to take home—for free. Each open-house event has a theme; past installments have focused on outer space, botany, and Dias de los Muertos art. Guests can choose to carve their own block for printing or to use one from the collection of blocks created by Highpoint artists. Free Ink days are for all ages, so it's a fun event that entertains artsy kids as well.
