I am trying to get to Beijing, China on June 2nd for my residency at the Inside Out Art Museum. Also buy materials to make awesome stuff while I am there.

New Stretch Goal!

Stretch Goal #2: We are shooting for $3000 now. With this money I will be able hire someone to assist me in the studio with printmaking. I have a introductory skill level and knowledge of printmaking, and would like someone to help me out. So if we hit $3000 everyone that has pledged $50 or more will recieve a small woodblock print made during the residency (It is believed that woodblock printing originated in China). Here is a link about the history of woodblock printing.  http://education.asianart.org/explore-resources/background-information/invention-woodblock-printing-tang-618–906-and-song-960–1279

DONE: Stretch Goal #1: We made our first goal of $1601 in 18 Hours! So I am stretching the goal to $2000. With every new donation I am going to be able to buy higher quality materials (paper, paint, wood etc etc...) as well as more materials. Allowing me to make this residency as beneficial as possible! If we reach the new goal every backer will get this sticker. 

$2000 Stretch Goal Reward. A 1'' X 3'' sticker for every backer.

My name is Noah Schenk. I am currently living in Muncie, Indiana finishing up grad school at Ball State University. With your help I am going to have an amazing experience creating a body of work while at my residency. Check out my website www.noahschenk.com and you can see some examples of my work. I am not exactly sure what I am going to be making in China but I will post updates to kickstarter through out my residency. 

What I am going to use the money for:

Airfare

Food while at the residency

Materials

Risks and challenges

This will be my first residency. That is why I am limiting the number of rewards that include pieces made during the residency. I will do my best to make sure that all of the rewards are delivered by the estimated date and if something comes up, you, the backers will be the first to know.
