Y(our) Legacy: A Printmaking Workshop
September 17th @ 6:00pm–9:00pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Friday, repeating until October 15, 2021
Y(our) Legacy is a 10-week printmaking workshop series designed to offer participants a creative practice towards their personal journey of self-acceptance and healing. Led by Oakland-based artist Sen Mendez, a.k.a. Queen Sen Sen, workshop participants will be given ten small blocks to create a visual story about themselves and their personal journeys.
The vision of this workshop series is to offer a creative safe space for participants to explore symbolism and printmaking, recreating and reimagining the meaningful and sometimes-painful stories of our lives, bringing these moments forward to be honored and to help unleash inner growth. In the workshops, participants will be asked to explore 10 symbols, using them in a transformational visual story of survival, resilience and self-acceptance. The completion of this workshop series will result in an exhibition showcasing the visual stories from participants who wish to share their legacies. Through the workshop series and the exhibition, our goal is to show how our stories are not far from one another – your legacy becomes our legacy.
This workshop is a collaboration between Resistance Press Oakland and ARTogether and offered both online and in person. The workshop is made possible by supporting contributions from CiNEOLA and Frameline.
