UCSB Library invites you to sign up for a free two-hour Stencil Screen Printing workshop led by Self Help Graphics & Art Barrio Mobile Art Studio.

Participants will learn how to create a handmade stencil with their own designs using cardstock and cutting tools. Artist and assistant will help participants through the design and cutting process before printing the designs via silkscreen. Designs will be printed as posters with vibrant inks.

This workshop is in conjunction with the Library's exhibition "Cultura Cura: 50 Years of Self Help Graphics in East LA" in addition to UCSB Reads 2024, which this year selected the book, Your Brain on Art: How the Arts Transform Us by Susan Magsamen and Ivy Ross.
