COMING SOON: "ANDREW WARHOLA, JR." PRINT PARTIES at JOLLY ROGER


In order to promote creativity and provide an opportunity for creative types to get hands on experience in screen printing we have come up with a variety of events that we will be offering once our studio space is up and running. Our "Andrew Warhola, Jr." Print Parties are intended for private parties of 8-10 people and will include studio assistants to help you if necessary, all materials and two 12x12 canvas boards for each participant to take home with them. Additional canvas board will be available for purchase. The cost for a private "Andrew Warhola, Jr." Print Party is $40. per person for a 3 hour time slot. BYOB and refreshments. Heres how it works:

The Marilyn Monroe image that you will be using to create your own screen printed work of art is based on the same publicity still from the 1953 film Niagara that Andy Warhol used for his famous "Marilyn Diptych" in 1962.

1. You will print an outline of the Marilyn Monroe head shot (using yellow ink) on a 12x12 canvas board to give you an outline to use as a guide for you to paint.

2. You will hand color your Marilyn print to your liking.

3. You will screen print a final Marilyn Monroe head shot (using black ink) over the top of your hand colored canvas to tie it all together.

4. You will be famous for 15 minutes.

To schedule your private party you can contact us at jollyrogerskateboards@charter.net.
