Self Help Graphics: Silkscreening Theory/Practice Workshop

Organizing Committee:


In collaboration with Self Help Graphics, a nationally recognized center for Latino art, The Public School will offer a class that introduces silkscreening (and printmaking in general) as a powerful political tool. - The first meeting will take place at The Public School in Chinatown. This meeting would be discussion based to introduce screen printing as an art/political tool within public space. The teacher will discuss their practice and provide a broader historical context. This session will conclude with a brainstorming session by the class participants to develop a screen-printing project/intervention to do in this city. - The second meeting will take place at SHG where the instructor will lead a silkscreening workshop. Students will be taught about silkscreening techniques, shown how to prepare artwork and then to burn a screen. Printing on paper (for posters?) will be the focus. _______ Self Help Graphics is a nationally recognized center for Latino arts that develops and nurtures artists in printmaking. SHG seeks to advance Latino art broadly through programming, exhibitions and outreach to diverse audiences in East Los Angeles and beyond. SHG seeks to identify and engage young and emerging artists from the community in all aspects of its activities. _______ Victoria Delgadillo, The politics of being a woman and a marginalized citizen has played a predominate role in Victoria's artistic vision. She was the Art Director for a public stained glass window project at the world's first glbt Jewish temple. In addition to printing, painting, curating, production and lectures, Victoria creates short films and is featured regularly on public radio, commenting on issues of art and activism.

Sikscreening workshop tomorrow!
This is a reminder that the 2nd and last meeting of this class is tomorrow and there is more room for newcomers. After the first week we had to adjust the project part of the class and so what we'll be doing is simply a straightforward workshop to walk through the entire process of silkscreening. There are a few choices of what image we'll be using for this walkthrough in a recently posted note: If you have a preference, say it!

If you're coming:
* dress in clothes you aren't afraid to get inky
* bring something to print on to (tshirt, bag, etc)
