Modern Times Bookstore
1 - 5 PM


What can you do when gentrifiers squeeze you out of your neighborhood seemingly with the full support of City Hall? Reclaim public space! Bring your friends, your mom, your little brother, and your grandma and join local artists from around San Francisco and Oakland for this hands-on workshop on low cost and low skill methods for making street art. Artists will instruct in simple and cheap technique, while providing information on and images of the rich history of art as resistance from around the world and back to the Mission. On Saturday, facilitators will go over the history as well as inexpensive methods for screenprinting. Sunday’s workshop will focus on the history and production of stenciling. These workshops are intended for long-time Mission residents and other folks fighting displacement. Workshops will be led in Spanish as well as English.
