Big Read
Printmaking with Meztli Projects

Friday, May 14 at 1 PM PST

As part of the 2021 National Endowment for the Arts Big Read program, LAMAG hosted a virtual workshop with Joel Garcia, printmaker and facilitator of Men’s Circles inspired by The Round House by Louise Erdrich. Garcia guided a printmaking session to reflect on pre-colonial and Indigenous perspectives on masculinity to develop prints that can help imagine ways of repairing harm committed within a community and against one another. This workshop was designed to be intergenerational and was open to all members of the general public.

Supplies required for the workshop are listed below:

  1. Plexiglass (4×6 in.)
  2. Etching needle
  3. Several sheets of paper (5×7 in.)
  4. Ink
  5. Lollipop stick
