Free Art School: Printing Resistance & Persistence Graphics


Free! (donations welcome at the event)

An open-to-any screenprinting party where people can demo and participate in the photo emulsion screenprinting process and design resistance graphics. Plenty a protest poster can be made and we'll take inspiration from a rich history of art activism like Atelier Populaire, Corita Kent, and justseeds (to name but a few).

Facilitator: John Engelbrecht is Director of Public Space ONE (PS1), an alternative arts space in Iowa City, IA. Countless local, national, and international exhibitions have happened in his tenure at PS1 along with a nearly daily program of performances, workshops, residencies and other (if succinctly-indescribable) events. He also teaches art at Mt Mercy University and Kirkwood CC. His background in photography informs an everyday art practice which looks with interest and inquiry towards the social, performative, and ephemeral using text and image.
