Novato High School

We kick started March with a very busy Friday. High school teacher, Roxana Leiva, brought 10 of her students from Novato High School. The students were able to view a demonstration of how to create a silk-screen poster, learn about the political legacies of the poster, and discuss student art that was important to them. With the help of our TANA interns Estela Tejada and Jose Quintero, the students were able to work in groups to co-create three original posters to take back with them to the Bay Area.

It was a beautiful way to start the weekend as we all enjoyed lunch provided by nearby taco trucks and danced some cumbia! The youth were more than capable in making their vision a reality through a print, even if they had no prior knowledge of printmaking. If they can do it, you can do it too! Stay tuned, as Spring Session will begin at TANA so you can begin learning how to print.
