Make the world better and easier-to-use.

This year’s studio art camp will visit commercial and creative centers for screen-printing in Cincinnati and learn about the history of silkscreen. Then you’ll roll up your sleeves and do it yourself, producing materials like posters, booklets and t-shirts that you can add to your portfolio. This camp will build your drawing skills and your understanding of color theory, while experiencing the community and collaboration in DAAP’s print shop.
