Meet Our New Instructors: Katie Foster and Fuko Ito!

Katie Foster

Poet Katie Foster joins the Lawrence Arts Center from Brown University where she received her MFA in Literary Arts. You can learn more about Katie, and explore her interactive works and visually engaging forms here. Looking to expand your own writing? You can enroll in Katie’s new class this fall, Poetry: Finding Form, where you will refine your own poetry through the strategy of playful experimentation and a creative visual approach to written structure.

Fuko Ito

Printmaker, Bookmaker, and illustrator Fuko Ito will be teaching Beginning Printmaking this fall. A master of varied techniques, including mokuhanga woodblock carving, Fuko’s pastel blanketed worlds have us dreaming of cooler weather. Create your own relief prints, screenprints, collographs, and etchings with Fuko in our studio this Autumn.
