Join Thurber Park Artist-In-Residence Ash Armenta (they/them) for this class at Thurber Park (3325 Thurber Ave) Have you ever wanted to screenprint at home but feel intimidated by the process or have had inconsistent results after trying? This beginner to intermediate class will focus on showing you some foundations of successful home poster and t-shirt screenprinting. We will be using a budget friendly diy Speedball kit. This class is for teens up through adults, please sign-up below if you plan to attend. 

Ash Armenta, a printmaker, is the second Thurber Park Artist-in-Residence who's work centers around the question “How can interpersonal relationships with self and community be visualized?" 

Thurber Park Artist Residency, founded in 2019, is a partnership between the City of Madison, Madison Arts Commission, and the Bubbler at Madison Public Library. This multi-month residency provides a private studio space for an artist to develop their own art practice by working towards the creation of a public art piece for the City of Madison, and inviting the community in to see and experience the art-making process. The selected artist has access to a free studio space, located within Thurber Park for approximately one year. Along with activating this space, the artist hosts intentional hands-on programming for the community, by leading hands-on workshops and open studio sessions for the public and targeted groups. The residency will culminate in a public art piece that is created during the residency.
