Students will explore the endless possibilities of printmaking as a medium for self-expression, learning techniques such as silkscreen, collagraph, relief printing, monoprint, and stenciling to print their stylized graphics on posters, flyers, postcards, t-shirts, tote bags, and more. This class empowers students to find their voice and create art that conveys a message to make an impact in our community and beyond! 

Out of an abundance of caution due to the Omicron variant, the winter session will begin the week of January 17 rather than January 10. Monday classes will begin January 24. Complete Yard School of Art policies and procedures, including COVID-19 safety are here.

Mansa K. Mussa

Mansa K. Mussa is a visual artist, arts educator, curator, and arts consultant. As a photographer, the native of Newark, New Jersey, has been using the camera to document “the unfolding of human events” in the United States, the Caribbean, Africa, Central America, and Europe for forty-four years. His photographs and collages have been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibits since 1974. They have also been published in several books, including the landmark Reflections in Black: A History of Black Photographers, 1840 to the Present.

During the past five years, he has developed a technique of digital photography he refers to as “iPadology.” In essence, it utilizes the iPad to create a series of abstract digital photographic images. The pictures are then edited with photo apps to produce optical illusions that can be printed on paper, fabric, and metal.

The goal is to layer the photographic image with broad strokes and small flourishes, and to combine the image with portraits, text, and geometric shapes to design a new form of ExpressiveArts.
