Screen printing is an easy way to take a t-shirt, book bag, or even a pillowcase and make it your own. We’ll identify symbols and shapes in the gallery to inspire our personal logo design. We’ll create simple stencil screen prints to make our mark on a t-shirt and anything else you want to bring to the studio!

Comics: Beyond the Frame
Saturdays, September 10, 17, 24, October 1, 8; 10 am–noon

Many of the artworks in the galleries only show us a snapshot of a story. In this class we will look at some of the Museum’s favorite artworks and ask ourselves what happens next. In the studio we’ll learn to use the skills of a comic book artist to tell our readers what’s happening beyond the frame.
