Gel Press was a 2016 co-sponsor of SAIL, through a generous donation of Gel Press Plates that were used in our wonderful Creating Value Workshop, July 10-13, 2016.
The art produced during Creating Value was featured in short poetic videos produced by participants.

In addition, participants received a full setup of materials to take back to their classrooms.
