Inuit Art - Printmaking Site
- Greetings Art Educators,
Nice to see that Getty list is still functioning (Thanks for posting
your student art, Mike. VERY nice!).
I have a collection of links to share (suggestions in our Sunday comic

helped this new art flourish by acquiring complete annual collections
of Inuit prints, which formed the basis of exhibitions at home and
I did printmaking units with my middle school students inspired by
contemporary prints of the Inuit and North West Coast Native
Americans. This looks like a good source of information (many sites I
used are no longer on line - or URL's have changed).
For my friend, Ann - you will like this site. I know you are reading
(smile). When it comes to printmaking, you are a master!
