We do all we can to support local schools and have been wanting to teach classes to young artists for years. An opportunity to partner with local public school, the Metropolitan Learning Center (MLC) presented itself recently and we jumped at the chance to participate. The class is a seven-week elective in letterpress printing and screenprinting where students (ranging in age from 12-14) get to learn about the business, technique, and art behind Egg Press. We keep it fun by mixing talks and training with hands-on activities to let the kids get their hands inky. We are excited to share our love of printing and to see what these young talents produce in the coming weeks!
If you are in Portland this coming Monday 4/23, all proceeds from our sample sale (all letterpress cards are $1!!) benefit MLC.
