For our second workshop in this series, we will explore the power of propaganda and the role of art and design in historical and political movements, such as the Black Panthers and the Guerrilla Girls. This will be followed by a hands-on demonstration on how to screen print at home. Participants will have the opportunity to print either a poster or T-shirt (please bring your own T-shirt, 100% cotton if possible).
