Workshop Description:

This 2 hour long workshop will explore the history of protest through poster-making and screenprinting. The first portion of this workshop will be Protest Art Foundations: A fast-paced, participant-led exploration of protest art from activists in North America over the last fifty years. Informed by history, participants will develop a message and create protest signs or posters. Whether you've marched with dozens of signs or are wondering how to make your first, this workshop is for you. The theme of the second portion will be Starting Conversations with Screenprinting. Participants will screenprint a patch or t-shirt with a powerful, personalized message. Get creative, speak your mind, and express your style! A chill zone with paintbrushes allows further freestyle expression on t-shirts.
