Art students learn printmaking on a large scale

Students in Studio Art class visited the Meyers School of Art at the University of Akron Nov. 14 to participate in BIG INK. Printmaking professor Charles Beneke hosted the event and invited Hoban to participate. For about two weeks, 11 Hoban students worked with Mr. Kraus to carve a 40"x74" woodblock. A massive printing press was used to print the large-scale carvings. The design features each of the students’ eyes and a quote from Martin Luther King. The completed print will be on display at Hoban during the Winter Fine Arts Festival on Sunday, Dec. 8, from 2 to 4 p.m.
