Course description:

Mental Health First Aid teaches the skills needed to recognize and respond to signs and symptoms of mental health and substance use challenges, as well as how to provide someone with initial support until they are connected with appropriate professional help. In the course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies to help someone in both crisis and noncrisis situations, and where to turn for help.

Panic attacks

Suicidal thoughts or behaviors

Non-suicidal self-injury

Acute psychosis (e.g., hallucinations or delusions)

What is Print Making?

The Metropolitan Museum of Art tells us printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a matrix onto another surface. Traditional printmaking techniques include woodcut, etching, engraving, and lithography.

A matrix is essentially a template, and can be made of wood, metal, or glass. The design is created on the matrix by working its flat surface with either tools or chemicals. The matrix is then inked in order to transfer it onto the desired surface. The resulting print is often the mirror image of the original design on the matrix.

This class will teach you all you need to know to create a beautiful, well-made linocut from first draft to final print. Liz will introduce students to materials and tools guide them, show carving techniques and tricks to help to get better results. Each student will create 2 carvings with several printing opportunities to take home.
