We love this block cut by Erik Neff who grew up in Coshocton.  Erik studied entomology (the study of insects) and became an artist. This is not an ant but rather a tiny (2-3mm long) ant parasite called a eucharitid wasp.  


Little Pom Artists will be exploring block printing this spring as they illustrate a poem by William Blake. He dreamt about an ant.

The poem, A DREAM, tells the story of an ant who has lost her way in the tangled grass and cries for her children in the dark. But not to despair — she’s rescued by a glow worm who lights her way and a beetle who “goes his round.”

Together, our little artist children will work on illustrations to tell the story of William Blake’s dream. They’ll print multiple copies to put in a small book—one for each little pom artist.

LITTLE POM ARTISTS CLUB (grades k-4) meets Monday afternoon @ 4pm.  WHO DREAMS ABOUT ANTS runs March 11 — April 15 (6wks). DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND we’re adding a second chapter of the club Monday evening @ 5:30pm. runs March 25 — April 29(6wks)

Cost is $5 per week (if that’s hard but you want your children involved—ask us about our need-based scholarships). Registration is required.
