Mexic-Arte Museum’s Screen It! program introduces underserved students, between ages 10 and 17, to principles of screen printing and related careers in the arts. Practicing artist educators conduct courses at local schools. For younger students, artist educators guide them through a 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. Students experience the serigraphy process by creating their very own t-shirts and related products at a local print studio. All Mexic-Arte education programs are TEKS aligned. Funding for this program is generously provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the CYD Program funded through a grant from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services through the City of Austin.
