Artist: John Iampieri
Screen painting is a unique and traditional folk art that started in Baltimore back in 1913. In this screen painting residency, students learn the history, techniques, tools, and functionality of the art form. This residency is custom-designed to meet your schools needs and budget. Students can make individual “mini screens” or a large-scale mural to be installed at the school. Screen painting images can be created from observation, memory, or imagination and is a perfect medium to connect to content in the classroom curriculum.

John made the whole experience for every child memorable especially the students whose images were chosen for the screens. They felt their artwork was very valuable.

This was truly an arts-integrated process for our third graders. The process of picture journaling their experiences with raising the terrapins has made that experience more memorable. The history of Poplar Island had more impact as it was explored through words and art. The students also learned Baltimore’s rich history in screen painting and now claim a piece of that tradition.
