Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night…

We’ve had a bit of all that in the past few days but it didn’t slow down the art studets and professors from  The American School in Switzerland (TASIS).

Mike did a story on the making of “Bive” (Printmaking Makes the Movies) and published it here on World Printmakers.
