Protest Art in Printmaking (Ages 12-14)
History is full of people with something to say. From “Black Power!” To “Votes for Women,” We’ve been moving the needle for justice and equity through the art we make. In this class, we’ll explore the art of civic movements that shape us. Using techniques in block and screen printing, we’ll tell the story of the communities we come from.

About the Instructor
Focusing in multiple mediums, Sam’s primary forms are Linocut printmaking, Fiber Arts (sewing and quilting) and Comic Art. Sam is a native of Richmond’s East End who has worked to craft a practice around the beauty and inequities found in the East End and communities like it. Through eco-conscious printmaking that highlights the deep history of the East End community and artistic partnerships
in schools and community spaces, Sam has been instrumental in cultivating light and love in the spaces they call home. Being no stranger to the obstacles facing students of the East End, both academic and social, Sam looks for any opportunity to shift the narrative and make space for young artists.
