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.
