ONSITE: Protest Art: Printmaking + Fiber Techniques
We’ll explore printmaking and fiber techniques to create an intentional art space and answer the question: “How do you use an art space for change?” We'll discuss the place of collaborative art making from happenings to art picnics to community builds during times of civil uprising. Together, we’ll explore screenprinting and block-printing as well as improvisational quilting and banner-making to create work to inspire and motivate. The class will culminate in an art-making potluck party where we work together and create art for protest.
