Paul will be exhibiting and selling work at the Solstice Book Fair in Iowa City tomorrow from 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 pm., see the poster to the right.

This is going to be an amazing fair!  Paul will have prints of his own work as well as the new linoleum block cuts from another Catich student, Bob O'hare.

In addition to the original prints, Paul will be selling Catich prints and books for The Art Legacy League.

Paul has been selected to be an instructor for Black Hawk College's College for Kids Program July 17-21 this year. Paul will be teaching three afternoon sessions every day for Calligraphy, as described in this course description:
(101) Calligraphy

You will learn the strokes, direction, and spacing of decorative lettering. You will experiment with various pens, ink, paint, and colored pencils. Once you learn the fundamentals, you will be able to create a project to take home.  

The College for Kids program has been in existence for five years. For more information about the program and registration information, please see their website by clicking HERE.

This is the first calligraphy course geared towards middle school aged students that Paul has taught in many years. As a member of the core faculty for The Catfish Letter Arts School, a division of The Art Legacy League, Paul is in the process of developing calligraphy and letter arts courses directed towards middle and high school aged students. These courses and workshops will be offered in the coming year through The Art Legacy League's new home located at The JB Young Opportunity Center in Davenport.
