Teens Learn the Art of Screen Printing at the Library's First Thursday

On April 3rd, twenty-one high school students gathered in the Creekside Room of the Mill Valley Library, armed with their artistic visions and a desire to learn. The Screen Printing workshop, part of the Library’s First Thursday series for high school students, was taught by two very talented instructors: Sam Kraus, owner and CEO of Chromaculture Screen Printing and Design in Novato, and James Schaff, Chomaculture’s print production guru.

After going over the basics of Screen Printing, Sam and James showed the students different screens they had brought with them (including a very special Mill Valley Public Library screen!). Everyone got to pick which design they wanted to screen print on a shirt to take home.

The Chromaculture instructors then informed the students that they would be holding a design contest, inviting each teen to draw as many designs as s/he wanted. The designers at Chromaculture are currently reviewing all the submissions and the winner will be revealed in the next week!

To cap off the evening, Sam and James announced that once a winner is chosen, all the participants are invited to come check out their shop in Novato. The Young Adult department couldn’t have asked for nicer, more talented instructors. Many thanks to Sam and James for making this First Thursday a huge success!
