You are invited to my 1st SILK SCREENING WORKSHOP in NYC!

Since I started silk screening like nobody’s business, I have gotten countless requests to teach a Silk Screening workshop, well, here it is folkz, moana love style…

 I will be leading a SILK SCREENING WORKSHOP 101 (Basics, get the fundamentals) on Mon. April 30, 2012; 7 pm – 9:30 pm in New York City!!

Registration Fee: $255.00 (5 scholarships available!)
Deadline to Register: Mon. April 23, 2012; midnight

–Maximum capacity: 40 PARTICIPANTS ONLY. Why 40 participants? We are building a community. I believe that everything you need and want is within y/our community. Everyone will have the opportunity to not only gain the skills of Silk Screening but they will also be able to meet and build with people…and who knows, maybe even create a team or even collective of “silk screen educators/ artists/ activists”…the possibilities are endless.

–Refreshments will be served. (There just has to be some food, punto. period.)

Your registration also includes:
***workbook and curriculum
***resource & materials guide
***follow up coaching sessions

I honor art making and its history AND I know any art form can be used as a tool for social justice and empowerment, we aint making Art just for Art Sake’s Silly. We are more than just a pretty face, right. I created this workbook and curriculum just for you and your students to know where silk screening comes from, how it’s been used over time, who has done it and how it has and can make a huge impact on the world. Also, I strongly believe in “Paying it Forward” and that is one of the reasons I am an Educator and Teacher–I want to teach you what I got, so you can teach another what you got. I strongly encourage Teachers and Educators to register for this workshop, so they may teach their students. You do not have to be a Teacher and/or Educator in a School System or Institution, you can be a person that can teach this to folks (young and old, tall and short, get it?) in your neighborhood, community center, church, mosque or synagogue; and the list goes on and on. I have created a workbook for you (and your students) and curriculum, that you can use to “Pay it Forward.”

When I started to learn how to do Silk Screening on my own, I did not see any one Resource and/or Materials guide online or elsewhere. I had to ask many people for advice; I went to many places for materials and figured out where to get the best; I practically figured out and learned on my own. With my experience and practice, I compiled a list of resources, stores and found materials (meaning free!) you can use to make your journey easier! (The list of stores and organizations are only in NYC.)

Silk Screening (like many things you are just learning) takes practice and experience. Ok, so you finished my workshop, you got all the knowledge, NOW its up to you to take that knowledge into power and do it. This can be a little daunting when you are ON YOUR OWN and wanting to do it the right way. Don’t worry, you won’t be on your own just yet…you can call me. Included in your fee, are 3 follow up coaching calls with me. You can use this anytime while you are “practicing.” Maybe your image did not burn through, what is the problem? Call me and we can figure out together what you can fix. These follow up coaching calls are AWESOME. I want to make sure that you can do silk screening on your own!
