All ages (yes kids AND adults) are invited to learn about the famous Ithaca Kitty and the different artistic interpretations the toy has inspired for over a century! Laura Rowley of Illuminated Press will help children create their own prints and greeting cards with laser cut blocks using images from the Ithaca Kitty archives!

All participants will leave with three high quality greeting cards laser cut by local printer and book artist Laura Rowley of Illuminated Press, printed on locally made Combat Paper by local artist Nate Lewis. Participants may also make and take home as many practice prints on scrap paper as they would like. Scrap paper will be provided, but participants may also bring items from home if they'd like to test how they print! 

WHEN: Saturday February 19th - 1-4:30pm

WHERE: CAP ArtSpace/Gallery - First Floor of the Tompkins Center for History & Culture

PRESENTERS: Z Van Nostrand (The History Center), Laura Rowley (Illuminated Press)

All participants must wear masks for the entire program. This is a drop-in event as part of Ithaca Loves Teachers, but anyone may attend. We will not permit more than 15 people to participate at a time to ensure social distancing practices can be followed. Printing takes a minimum of 45 minutes to make and dry your prints. Participants are encouraged to also explore the Exhibit Hall, and can complete additional coloring pages and scavenger hunts during the event. 

**This program was originally scheduled in a different format for December 11th 2021.
