Youth Art Design and Screen Printing Program
The Youth Art Design and Screen Printing Program is a partnership between the Comox Valley Art Gallery, the Wachiay Friendship Centre and the Community Justice Centre. The program provides an opportunity for students to develop design skills and explore screen printing techniques in the creation of North West Coast Aboriginal Art. Students are mentored by acclaimed Northwest Coast First Nations Artist Andy Everson and local Screen-printing guru Andy MacDougall, in the creation of images that express their culture. In addition to receiving experience in art production, print production, graphic design, and portfolio development, the students will have the experience of presenting their work at the Comox Valley Art Gallery alongside their mentor and teacher Andy Everson.
