Screen It!

Mexic-Arte Museum’s Screen It! program connects students to the Austin art community, guiding them in the development of their art skills as a tool of expression and as valuable entrepreneurial skills. 

Screen It! serves children between ages 10 and 17, where we introduce them to the principles of screen printing and related careers in the arts. For younger students, artist educators guide them through basic introduction of screen printing techniques –from the creation of stencils to a final poster design project. For teens, Screen It! provides the opportunity to learn the Adobe Photoshop interface as a means of creative expression.

The program encourages participants to express themselves creatively in a safe learning environment while creating meaningful, personalized artwork they can wear proudly (such as T-shirts, reusable shopping bags, and/or posters).
