Engaging in the art of Sister Corita Kent

1029

“In honor of the re-issued book ‘Learning by Heart’ by Sister Corita Kent and Jan Steward, a series of events were planned. A silkscreen workshop at the Corita Center in Los Angeles was designed to engage the community in the spirit of the authors, propose that anyone would create something themselves, and contribute to a joyous ceremony in the manner of the 1960’s Mary’s Day’s celebrations organized by Corita.

Banners and shirts were adorned with words collected by Jan Steward and designed by Handbuilt Studio. People and children that pulled squeegees, poured inks and stared at their creation until it dried engaged in the celebration deeply and became treasure owners.

Conceived to engage even very young children, the workshop taught by making, and sharing a creative experience.” — Handbuilt Studio https://www.flickr.com/photos/handbuiltstudio/4398944174/in/photostream/
