Screen Printing Workshop

Come learn how to print your own CUA Homecoming t-shirt! Have Cardinal Pride with an Artsy flare. The Department of Art will be hosting a screen printing workshop to work in synergy with homecoming and the upcoming exhibition opening of To Believe – The Spirited Art of Corita on Friday, October 26, 2012 (located in the May Gallery in the John K. Mullen of Denver Memorial Library.) This exhibition features artist Corita Kent, who is best known for her 1960’s screen prints. Corita loved this artistic medium for its Christian principles, stating herself that
 

“I’m a printmaker… a very democratic form, since it enables me to produce a quantity of original art for those who cannot afford to purchase high-priced art… the distribution of these prints to everyday places of work pleases me, and I hope they will give people a lift… more fun out of life.”

This event will take place on Wednesday, October 24 in the Pryz cafeteria from 11:30 to 1:00pm. In the spirit of celebrating the joyful art and career of the remarkable Corita Kent, we invite all students to make their own spirited CUA homecoming tee-shirt in preparation for the big game on Saturday.   Please join the Department of Art for an afternoon of creativity, fun and Catholic University pride.
