How can the arts function as a vehicle for social activism and inspire your wearable call to action?
For Black Futures Month 2024, we offer a Visual Arts program specifically for February: screen-printing! In this full-day program, students will explore how textile arts have impacted social change across diverse communities and use this as inspiration to design and screen-print their own wearable patch, bringing awareness to a social justice issue that is of importance to them.
By the end of the Creative Edge: School Visits Celebrates Black Futures Month – Screen-printing program, students will:
- Gain an appreciation for the role the arts play as a form of social activism.
- Experiment with the screen-printing process to make a wearable call to action on a patch of fabric.
- Use vocabulary related to topics of social justice and the printmaking process appropriately.
