P.I.Y: Print It Yourself

Submitted by Misled Youth Network on Mon, 01/21/2008 - 10:42pm
Short Description: 

In this hands-on workshop, participants will get a chance to try three kinds of printmaking – screenprinting, linoleum printing, and stenciling. These three processes allow you to print on paper, fabric, wood, and even on the street. With printmaking, you can create a one-of-a-kind one-off or mass produce a visual takeover. These techniques are accessible even with little to no budget, especially if you utilize community resources. So grab a gouge, a squeegee, or a spray can and make your mark.
