Non-Toxic Printmaking


       As a 2001-2002 recipient of the Creative Renewal Arts Fellowship through the Arts Council of Indianapolis with Lily Endowment, Blasingham studied new non-toxic printmaking methods to achieve the beauty of the traditional but toxic methods of lithography, etching, and aquatint.  She shared her experience with the community of artists and arts educators involved in printmaking in Central Indiana through demonstrations and workshop materials they can take back to their own studios and schools.  Using the new methods improves the quality of life for printmakers who choose to be freed from unhealthy chemicals.

       As Chairman of INprint, she organizes and encourages this group of 30 Central Indiana and regional printmakers to facilitate a resurgence of printmaking in studios and schools by publicizing and promoting healthy methods, to serve as a resource of information for other Indiana artists and teachers, and to become advocates for non-toxic studio practices.
