Monto Print 'n' Run
Unit 1, Liberty Corner
James Joyce Street
We want to bring children together to learn about the process of printing while creating an increased awareness of the historic MONTO area of the inner city. This drop-in screen-printing workshop is facilitated by a group of artists from Monto Arts, and with print stations provided by ‘DAMN FINE PRINT” and will take place in Oonagh Young Gallery.
Each station includes one printing press, one customisable screen, and two experienced print staff to teach the children screen-printing. The children will select their preferred pre-prepared slogan and screenprint it on a t-shirt and/or bag to take home for free.
The children will leave the gallery physically wearing an artwork of their own making with slogans where community awareness and pride will be deepened, enhancing the understanding and potential of the picnic’s value and significance for local people.
