Students in Wayzata High School’s computer art 3 class, had an opportunity to learn from artist in residence Abigail Woods Anderson in April. The class is taught by Lee Anne Jasper.

Anderson lead a lesson on blending media. The students hybridized diverse techniques, from sun prints, to simple lino cuts, to digital intervention. The successive stages offered students opportunities to respond to and transform their own work.

Anderson is a Minneapolis-based artist and educator and currently works with the Walker Art Center’s department of education and community programs. Anderson makes prints at Minnesota Center for Book Arts, where she’s an instructor and member of the artist cooperative.
