RAVENSWOOD — Students from Ravenswood Middle School have been working on various printing projects for the Tamarack Children’s Gallery event on “The Power of Prints.”

The main idea is for students to understand the impact the printing process has had on history over time, school officials said. Printing was the first way to mass produce and exchange information around the world.

Printmaking is one of the earliest forms of art from the production of newspapers, books, textiles and money, school officials noted. Students were asked to create art using a variety of printing methods.

There were 372 entries with 100 works selected for this event at Tamarack in Beckley.

Ravenswood Middle School had eight students with work selected to be part of this exhibit.
