T-Shirt Printing and Graphic Design Workshop

School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Homan Square Campus - Summer 2019


In this three-part workshop series, participants gain a new skill in graphic design and marketing that can be used for community building or entrepreneurial projects. In summer of 2019, members of the North Lawndale Teen Art Council learned the foundational text and layout tools for Adobe Illustrator to create a promotional flyer for their upcoming community art event, developed a logo with text and image, and learned to screen print their logo onto t-shirts. Students printed 60 t-shirts given to community members at a neighborhood art opening and outdoor festival.
