ONSITE: Letterpress Posters (Ages 15–18)

From rock bands to art shows, everything needs a poster. The poster is how we share quick information, celebrate each other and archive the future. In this class, we’ll focus on the different aspects of letterpress to make bold works that say something cool. Letterpress is a form of relief printmaking which uses a printing press and typesetting (individual letters) to create words and designs for printed media. Bands originally used this form of printmaking to advertise their concerts and shows.
