This screenprint is a remix of my 2018 print for our Community Supported Art (CSA), which was inspired by working with ARYSE, programming that supports immigrant and refugee students in Pittsburgh. ARYSE programs are planned around four major themes that build on students’ natural resiliency and talent including: English language learning, academic preparedness, storytelling through creative expression, and team building through sports. I created this original print after screenprinting with ARYSE’s girls art and maker group, and I adapted new text for this edition to better fit their mission of building confidence and empowerment through personal and collective creative expression. A part of this edition was printed as thank yous to donors in their fundraising campaign at the end of 2018. I have a few extra for sale here to recoup costs and further fundraise for this crucial youth programming. A portion of sales on Justseeds will also go to ARYSE.
