Students Create Conway Event

The registered student organization Students for the Arts from the University of Central Arkansas will host a virtual printmaking workshop and virtual art exhibit, premiering on Thursday, Oct. 1 at 7 p.m.



A limited number of supply kits for the printmaking activity were given out by Students for the Arts. If you want to follow along from home and don’t have a kit, you will need the following materials:

  • Paper towels
  • Flat paint brush or foam brush
  • Potatoes
  • Paring knife or other small knife
  • Cutting board
  • Cardboard
  • Paper or fabric to print on
  • Acrylic paint or India ink

The videos will be archived on the Conway ArtsFest YouTube channel so you can do the project at any time after Thursday’s premiere. This project is appropriate for older children with supervision, teens and adults.

Be sure to send us photos of what you make! Use this form or email them to

The 14th annual Conway ArtsFest will be held virtually from Sept. 26 through Oct. 3, 2020. The virtual festival will include activities you can do from home, performances by local talent, virtual exhibitions, a Black Artists Showcase event and more!
