Prints Link Philadelphia

The photo above is work done by students from the Grover Washington School with teaching artist, Ben Volta, sponsored by the Philadelphia Museum of Art.



As part of Prints Link Philadelphia program the Please Touch Museum’s Program Room will feature a very special Mono-Print Making Activity. Visitors will use a variety of new and interesting tools including stamped and textured rollers, toothbrushes, scrapers and foam to create unique works of art! A number of these prints will be selected by the museum and displayed as a part of the group Prints Link Philadelphia’s Children and Teens Print Exhibition at the Main Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia during Philagrafika 2010.

Prints Link Philadelphia is a coalition of community arts organizations, art centers, museums, teaching artists, and pre-k through higher education art educators who are interested in promoting printmaking for children and teens in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. We are planning multiple exhibitions and events to coincide with Philagrafika's symposium in 2010.

2009-2010 Bus Shelter Project
March 1-14th

Throughout the school year the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Division of Education works with 240 middle school students from six schools for eighteen weeks. These students are introduced to the Museum‘s collection and special exhibitions through studio projects created by a staff of professional artists.  A community service component is the final project for the year.

This year, inspired by the Graphic Unconscious 2010 upcoming events, students from six Philadelphia middle schools worked on printing projects in their after school classes in the fall at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Each of the twelve classes, with their art teachers, created a large collaborative print.  These prints were photographed and made into Bus Shelter Posters to be exhibited throughout the city for two weeks, March 1- March 14th.
