Contemporary Art Party
Spring Silkscreen Series Launch: Memory/Acceptance/Consent
Facilitated by Barb Danielewski
Date: Thursday May 2nd
6:30pm - 8:30pm
Agnes Etherington Studio, Queen's University, Kingston Ontario
Create colourful t-shirts using screenprints and stencils. In this introduction to contemporary art and printmaking, we’ll ground our creative works with discussions around Memory, Acceptance and Consent. Fun for deep thinkers!
Bring an old white T-shirt you don't mind getting paint on or let us know in the registration form if you will be needing one provided.
The theme is: Memory/Acceptance/Consent
Type a word or phrase that relates to any of these themes and pick a sweet font to make it interesting. Doodle an image or create a pattern that resonates with you on any of these themes.
A jury will choose a couple of winning designs and you will receive free screen-printed patches AND the chance to print your own image onto a T-shirt on May 2nd.
Deadline to submit has been extended to April 16th, or bring your idea to the party to turn it into a stencil!
