HEBRON — On Saturday, August 10 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, the Newfound Audubon Center will host printmaker and artist, Alma Grand, who will conduct a demonstration and hands-on workshop showcasing her innovative printmaking techniques.
Alma has lived, taught, and created art in Campton since 1977.

Under the direction of Plymouth State University art professor Annette Mitchell, she discovered the multi-plate printmaking process. One of her original designs using this method, "Out of the Blue", was selected by Di Downing of the Common Man Family of Restaurants to be the signature artwork of this year's 8th Annual Winnipesaukee Wine Festival.
This event is for participants ages 10 and up. Space is limited to 12 registrants. $10 for adults and $6 for children 10-16. Call 744-3516 to register. The event will take place at Ash Cottage in Hebron.
