“Print Change” is an after-school class that teaches students how to silkscreen and print linocuts, among other printmaking techniques. Students visit local museums and artist studios to support what they are learning in the classroom. The course addresses the role printmaking has played in the history of political resistance and protest, and resources youth with tools to illustrate their perspectives on pressing issues in their lives and neighborhoods.
The first class of Print Change was offered to middle schoolers from April 14 – 18 (the week of spring break) in Harlem. Check out the Spring 2014 photos here.
