Children See a Day Through Their Parents’ Eyes

UA Department of Art and Art History instructor Charlotte Wegrzynowski and graduate teaching assistant Zoe Fitch held a printmaking workshop for the recent Women and Gender Resource Center’s “Take Your Children to Work Day” event. “We had twelve participants who made at least thirty prints using styrofoam plates and printer paper,” Wegrzynowski said.

The children ranged in age from about seven to about 15 (first grade through high school).

Wegrzynowski, a book artist who teaches drawing and design courses, used to bring her own children to the annual workshop when they were younger. She has participated in the special day since 2016, although she admitted she skipped 2020. “It was virtual, which seemed to miss the point a little. Imagine all those poor little people stuck in a day-long series of Zoom meetings.”
