Print Boise 2017 is a historic walking tour printmaking adventure. Join us to learn about the history of some important immigrant groups to Boise, including Chinese, German and Basque and make a unique print in this downtown Boise neighborhood. The first half of the workshop will be spent exploring historic sights and hearing tales of Boise's past in the downtown area and the second half making plein art prints of architectural rubbings on site! No previous art experience required. 

Families welcome (best fit for ages 6 and up). Wear walking shoes, dress for the weather and bring a bottle of water. Each participant will receive a print to take home and keep and the others will end up in the City of Boise Arts & History Department public art collection and be exhibited at MING Studios for First Thursday in August.
