In this class, we will review how different kinds of visual art have contributed towards activism throughout history, and discuss foundational knowledge for practical art building skills. This includes how to do wheatpasting, banner drops, puppet building, etc. and then we will create our own posters together for the cause of your choosing. At the end of the class, we will discuss how to organize an art build in your community for causes that you care about.
