About the Workshop

This workshop, in partnership with DuWell, focuses on blending art and mental health awareness. Students will screen print a design that says “you matter.” onto a t-shirt in a horizontally flipped position, so the message can be read in the mirror. The event aims to be a fun way to help students maintain a positive mindset and promote the daily practice of caring for one’s mental health.

This two hour workshop will cover the basics of screen printing. We will use photo emulsion to create an image on a screen and then learn how to print that design on a shirts. T-shirts will be provided for you to print on at this workshop, however you may bring your own if you have sizing concerns. Provided t-shirt sizes will be limited.
