Ten years ago, printmakers at the Monterey Peninsula College in California began devoting the first Saturday in May to printing.
Three years ago Minot State and the Flat Tail Press brought the celebration to Minot.
People were invited to visit Hartnett Hall and see what goes into making a print.
Students worked to make their own designs into prints through a variety of processes including screen printing and woodcuts.
“A lot goes into print making that people don’t really think about and it’s really process based. Some might see the finished print and they just see what it is, they don’t understand that so much science and different things go into figuring out how to make this print happen.” said Katie Abrahamson, Co-Organizer of Print Day in May.
Attendees were allowed to help with the printing process and to buy prints that were made.
