This week’s rad teen print is a t-shirt design, collectively conceived, drawn and printed by the girls of Power Up, a new after-school youth program I am teaching at the Warhol Museum.
Heather White and I wanted to synthesize some of the best bits of past programs we have done: silkscreen printing (of course!), activism and advocacy, self-actualization, health, feminism, and of course relevancy and FUN.
We are working with a group of seven African American teenage women to teach graphic design and silkscreen printing through health topics. We are working with many organizations and individuals as guest speakers and clients, including the East End Food Co-op, Planned Parenthood, Youth Empowerment Project, The Birth Circle, and more.
