Limited spots are available in our 8-week Printmaking concentration as a work-study scholarship student. The scholarship covers: reduced tuition, room, and meals – more information can be found here: https://penland.slideroom.com/#/login/program/76738
We love Jamaal Barber’s combined use of woodcut and screenprint to layer patterns, colors, figures, and narratives.
A small group of lucky students will spend 8 weeks with Jamaal this spring in the Penland print studio! https://penland.org/workshops/printmaking-letterpress/
“My art makes social commentary about black life and black identity. I explore all aspects of black life in America from the nostalgic reverence of small town, southern life to the societal forces that shape modern life across the country.
Figures in my art are carved and printed in relief with added layers of texture by screen printing patterns and colors to support the narratives. My aim is to create a new kind of propaganda to spread messages that speak to all aspects of black life.”

See you this spring!
