Teen Art Exhibit and Printmaking Workshops Coming to Six CPL Branches

With the support of the Terra Foundation, the Harold Washington Library Center YOUmedia conducted an intensive art education program this summer for teens. Teens in the program found inspiration in the work of Chicago’s artists by exploring museum collections throughout the city.  They also learned sophisticated techniques in screen printing, relief carving and other mediums and created new pieces of art while doing so.
 
This fall and winter, the amazing artwork they created will be on display in six neighborhood branches across the city as part of a traveling exhibit.
 
In addition to housing the exhibit, each participating library branch will host a reception to introduce their community to the art. Each location will also offer a hands-on on workshop for teens in their community to learn a printmaking technique and create art of their own.

Check out the exhibit schedule at the branches below:

October 15th - November 2nd
