The Members of the New Orleans Community Printshop and Darkroom are passionate about printing by hand and love to share our knowledge. Our youth programming enables young artists from the Upper and Lower Ninth Wards find their own artistic voice.

We help our participants by teaching them how to make silkscreen prints, publish zines, photo document their experiences, and represent their art work!  We also take them on field trips where they are exposed to new experiences & hands-on learning. This is all at no cost to their families.

In addition to educating our own Youth Program participants, we take the learning on the road to other local schools and organizations.
