Traveling Craft Suitcases
Each suitcase is a traveling gallery which allows students to interact with the art works and, in some cases, the tools used to create them. Lack of school or community resources for lengthy field trips need no longer be a barrier which keeps your students from experiencing the richness and variety of art and craft traditions in Kentucky. With our suitcases, the art, along with everything you need to effectively present it to your students, comes to you!
The Printmaking suitcase comes with the following items:
