We are currently trying to start a screenprinting program called L-Ink. at The Urban Studio. Our goal is to help youth in Old North St. Louis develop job and communication skills though the creative process--but we still need some supplies!
In addition to making their own work, students will also be creating t-shirts and tote bags for the café and participating in teaching artist Stan Chisolm’s Moneybags project. L-Ink. will also feature field trips to local artists’ studios. The program will culminate in an art opening featuring the work of the youth. Youth will receive the proceeds from the sale of their artwork, as well as a stipend for successful completion of the program.
We need your help in order to make this program work! Please contact Grace (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to make a cash donation, or can help us with screenprinting supplies, t-shirts, or tote bags.
