Art for Tweens and Teens

Have you ever wondered how that design was printed on your favorite t-shirt? How about your favorite band poster, images in galleries, or CD cover? Driving counter-culture music and art scenes as well mass produced graphics, screen printing has been a foundation in visual communication as we know it today. Screen printing is a fun technique to add to your artistic tool belt; allowing you to print on anything.

Choose from three different hands-on, graphic design sessions, each focusing on a different technique.Students will learn fundamental design concepts and skills and leave each session with completed works and artistic confidence. Students will exhibit their work in the final 30 minutes of the final class.


Sessions are $120 each, held on Monday evenings from 5:30-8:00 PM and include a pizza dinner. Developed for kids ages 11+. No experience necessary.
