Grant-funded field trips available for middle and high school students! Application deadline this Friday March 21

The Printshop has a grant from the Arts Council of New Orleans to do workshops/field trips with local middle and high school student groups. They’ll have a chance to learn about screenprinting at our shop and create t-shirts, posters, flyers, etc to support their organizations. Supplies and instruction are covered by the grant. What are some cool organizations or clubs that we should partner with? We’d love to hear your ideas!

Please contact with questions, to receive an application, or if you have ideas for organizations that we should reach out to.
