Print Workshops with Grace Rosario Perkins

Grace Rosario Perkins with her text-based art

Investigate landscape, identity, and time with guest artist Grace Rosario Perkins. Grace will lead a series of workshops for youth to create largescale prints, wearable textiles, planters & paintings, culminating in a show at Kala Art Gallery. Artists will work together looking at an array of contemporary artists who work with public art, activism, and more, as well as material from Golden Gate's Commons Archive, and our own personal family stories. 

All workshops are drop-in, and all youth are welcome to engage in artmaking. Grace will provide materials and guide conversation.

Youth will print textiles and clothing to add to a display and wear during an activation of space at the Kala Art Gallery on Saturday June 29th. Students can make head-to-toe screenprinted looks that composite symbols, text, and photos reflecting their histories and futures.
