Artist Statement

It’s magic! Wow! How did you do that! Are we going to learn this painting technique?

These kinds of questions and many other fuel my fire!

Having the opportunity to teach this 100-year old Baltimore-born folk art with children in the classroom in a more unique opportunity for me to plant screen painting seeds! I love it!

Let’s go, hon!

Artist Bio

Master screen painter, John Iampieri has been hand painting screens for businesses and homes for many years. Influenced by the traditional methods used by Baltimore screen painters, his work has been exhibited throughout Maryland. John’s screens have been in feature films as well as several TV commercials, magazines, and papers. In 2010, John’s successful screen painting workshop at Pocomoke Middle School was included in a feature on “The NBC Today Show,” with Anne Curry. In addition to sharing the history, tools and techniques used in this art form, John strives to teach students how works of art can express ideas, feelings, and meaning. John’s passion for screen painting is evident throughout every step of the project’s process. His programs can connect to any class curriculum from 1st grade and up with small screen projects to 60’ long screen murals which, as a legacy program, stay at your school for years to come.
