Artist Daniel Heyman made the trip to Canton from Philadelphia, PA, earlier this week, visiting campus in conjunction with the Bearing Witness exhibition, which features his gouache paintings and prints (including a huge etching on multiple pieces of plywood).
While here, he gave a very moving artist’s lecture, met with students and members from the local community, and also taught Japanese wood block printing to Melissa Schulenberg’s beginning printmaking class. And he made a lithograph with Melissa, too! All this in just 2 1/2 action-packed days.
I really enjoyed getting to know Daniel — and his snappy sense of humor!
