Artist in Residence Printing Designs

After Middle School Core Group students' designs were carved onto wooden bench slats, Artist in Residence Emily Moorhead-Wallace made prints of the slats so that the student artists will have a record of their creations.  Emily was assisted in the printing by her father, Earl Moorhead. The carved slats will be assembled into benches and installed on Springer's campus.
