The New Orleans Community Printshop has been running  youth programming for the past five years. For the past two years, Rachel Speck has been running a weekly Youth Day for children and young teenagers in the direct neighborhood of the Printshop. Students work on art projects, use the Silkscreen and Darkroom Facilities, and go on Field Trips.

Jadda started her series on empowered women in February 2017 with her print of Maya Angelou!

The New Orleans Community Printshop and Darkroom is expanding our youth programing to include photography! If you have any point & shoot cameras or film SLR cameras, you may donate them to our Youth Program. We are also in search of old books the kids can reference and utilize in their printing. All donations may be dropped off during our Open Shop hours, which are every Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm – 10pm.

Youth Day opportunities are made possible by generous funding from  the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, and supporters just like you! If you would like to donate to Youth Day, please email us at communityprintshop@gmail.com .
