Propaganda Posters: A Painting Workshop for Teens

Monday, October 30, 2017 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm
During WW1, governments of many countries designed and distributed posters to both inspire patriotism and foster an aversion to the enemy. In this hands-on workshop, we'll take a look at these fascinating images then either copy one of the designs or create your own using watercolor pencils under the guidance of art teacher Christine Thornton. Beginners welcome! Part of Wheaton Reads: WWI
