Tommy Pau visits participating schools to introduce printmaking and explore Indigenous culture with students, which is followed by a one-day intensive printmaking workshop at Umbrella Studio with artists Jo Lankester and Tommy Pau. Students investigate lino printing, carving and editioning before producing their own print which illustrates their identity and culture. The prints are subsequently exhibited on a rotational basis at The Galleria, Riverway Arts Centre, Perc Tucker Regional Gallery, or Umbrella Studio.
