Arts For Learning

Screen painting is a unique and traditional folk art that started in Baltimore back in 1913. In this screen painting residency, students learn the history, techniques, tools, and functionality of the art form. This residency is custom-designed to meet your schools needs and budget. Students can make individual “mini screens” or a large-scale mural to be installed at the school. Screen painting images can be created from observation, memory, or imagination and is a perfect medium to connect to content in the classroom curriculum.
