Print Workshops for Thurs June 13 CANCELLED

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. 

TODAY'S PROGRAM, Thursday, June 13th, 2-5pm, HAS BEEN CANCELLED. Please drop in for future workshops!

Writing and painting - looking at Commons Archive material as created by artist Sue Mark, sign-based artwork, and public artists, youth are invited to investigate their stories as prompts for public art projects. Students will create text-based work and learn about Grace's process, along with other artists, for inspiration. The end result will be text paintings and Grace will explain screenprinting, the project itself, and how it will all come together.
