Learning a new trade

November 4, 2012

Gov. Lincoln Chafee, center, on a recent tour of RiverzEdge Arts Project in Woonsocket, learns the art of screenprinting from assistant instructor Steve Harden, right, and instructor Thomas Engleman, left. The tour was part of the celebration of Arts and Humanities Month in Rhode Island, along with the governor’s interest in the Arts Project’s record in workforce development, a public policy priority of Chafee’s. The screenprinting department at RiverzEdge grosses $100,000 from outside printing sales per year.
