If you hike or camp near many of the sheep trails throughout the state, you may have seen some of these wonderful carvings. Please respect our forests and enjoy the arborglyphs, but reserve the carving of the aspens to the sheepherders.
Students will have an opportunity to try their hand at creating their own arborglyph by carving on sheets of scratch foam this coming week. After carving the foam, we will roll ink across the surface of the foam and, using a relief printmaking process, students will create their own aspen tree carvings. By the time the week is over, we should have a beautiful grove of tree carvings!
