Implementation: Silkscreen, Session 1 of 4

It took a minute folks, but I finally uploaded a short video of the Silkscreening class being held at Asian Neighborhood Design.

In addition to the SOMCAN ENACT youth and adult organizers, the folks at PODER (People Organizing to Demand Environmental and Economic Rights), and CPA (Chinese Progressive Association) sent their cadres of youth to learn a historically populist artform known as Silkscreening, or Screen-printing.

The instructors were Jesus Barraza of Taller Tupac Amaru, and Vicki Carr of the SF Print Collective.

The video above includes a handful of what happened during the first session, and I'll be documenting the subsequent 3 sessions, and what I'm hoping to explore in the next 3 sessions are how these groups articulate both the core and the immediate of their campaigns and how to create an image and design the is mindful of everyone's input.

Oh, and I hope to document the fun inherent within printmaking and collaborations -- especially with youth productions.
