Printmaking is a studio and craft-based art form performed both together and      individually, bringing individuals into a social learning practice of art-making in a variety of printmaking studios, including those that reside in Macy Hall at Teachers College. 

Art-making, such as printmaking, is a means of self and group-directed emotional study that directly influences other processes of learning and psycho-social development and becomes a way of exploring our interior landscapes. Individual and community resilience begins in these interior landscapes as it navigates outwards. The ability for printmaking to be flexible, but process-driven, positions printmaking as a resilient model for community art-making. 

 Printmaking Community Resilience explores the role of art-making for cognitive and emotional resilience, as well as the art form as a flexible and social art practice. It features work that highlights getting started in the medium, such as Low-Tech Print: Contemporary Hand-Made Printing and Block Print Magic. It also spans conversations with Elliot Eisner and Maxien Greene on the emotional and political position of art-making for cognitive development. The collection is rounded out with books that discuss the role of social practice art-making and social justice.

 This book display is curated by Lindsey Frances Jones, 2022 Myers awardee for the Gottesman Libraries commissioned art, I Was Born in Shapes, on display in Offit Gallery until early February 2023. Printmaking Community Resilience is designed by Trisha Barton, Gottesman’s Lead Designer.
