Hosted by Washington County Museum, located on the PCC Rock Creek Campus:
17677 NW Springville Rd., Portland, OR, 97229
For the final Free Family Morning event of 2018 join us to create one-of-a-kind prints on paper with a real printing press! Artists Michael and Roxanne McGovern will lead participants of all skill levels through the monotype printing process, from adding ink to the printing plate to running it through the press. Participants will also have exclusive access to a special micro exhibit of historic toys from the Washington County Museum collection that the museum’s curator has created to provide inspiration for this unique family activity!
Mike and Roxanne McGovern are prolific artists with extensive experience teaching and leading printmaking workshops and classes for all age levels. Both of their artwork deals with themes of family and memory as a way to seek truth, uphold family legacy and create new narratives.
Facility Note: This event will take place at PCC Rock Creek in Building 3, Room 103 in the Print Studio. Museum visitors can always park for free in the museum’s lot on the east side of our building, as well as in PCC Rock Creek’s parking lot A (free only on Saturdays). From there it is a short walk to the print studio and directions will be available at the museum. Museum, studio, and pathways are ADA accessible.
Free Family Mornings is an ongoing series hosted by the Washington County Museum. Each month during the school year the museum hosts a family-friendly, no-experience-needed workshop led by a teaching artist from the community. Museum entrance is always FREE during these events, and includes access to all rotating and permanent exhibits.
