Class Experience

For this three-week Artist Xchange Program, youth artists will join mixed media visual artist, Alex Martinez, in exploring what legends, characters, and icons that have informed their personal identity or cultural understanding and shape their visual language. 


Students will explore this question self-publishing with zine-making, stencil-making, monoprinting, and relief printmaking.  Students will be supported to develop their individual projects and have the opportunity to contribute to a class collaborative painting.


Students Ages 13 to 17 who live or go to school in Richmond are encouraged to participate.
