Wanted Posters mounted at Supercrawl 2014
Written By: Michelle Gibson
Student participants of the NuSteel program completed their first prints just in time to make an appearance at Supercrawl.
These posters represent students’ first forage into the world of print-making. Over the course of the semester, students will learn how to create one and two-colour prints, posters, t-shirts, and a variety of saleable merchandise.
Students at the NuSteel program have a unique opportunity to experience the life of an artist-entrepreneur as they work to create and sell handmade art products at Hamilton’s monthly art crawls on James St. North.
The program, a partnership between Centre3 for Print and Media Arts, and the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, is aimed at engaging students in Alter-Ed who enjoy art-based learning. Students undertake several secondary school subjects over the course of the semester, including English, History, Civics and Careers, and Art. All major student projects are art-based. The program, in its infancy last year, proved to be quite successful, and we are now off to a wonderful start in year two.
Here’s to the start of a great semester!
