“Art for me now must develop from a necessity within my people. It must answer a question, or wake somebody up, or give a shove in the right direction—our liberation.” —Elizabeth Catlett
Join us for a two-part weekend workshop with Atlanta-based printmaker, artist, and organizer, Jasmine Nicole Williams. Over two days, we will explore printmaking through hands-on instruction and practice, rooted in an understanding of its historical importance in liberation struggles internationally. All levels of experience are welcome.
Dates: Friday, July 28, 6-9 PM • Saturday, July 29, 1-4 PM
Teaching artist bio:Jasmine Nicole Williams is a Black American cultural worker and organizer from Atlanta, GA. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in Printmaking from the University of West Georgia in 2017. Her work explores her southern, black, and femme identities through printmaking and murals to inspire working class and oppressed people to fight for and win liberation.
Influenced by the work of artists like Elizabeth Catlett and Emory Douglas, Jasmine believes in the transformative power of portraiture, print, and public art. She understands the role of art in the movement and the need for that art to be accessible to the people as a tool to advance the working class struggle. With a deep interest in craft and process, Jasmine makes dignified work that reflects and relates to everyday people that injects them with a revolutionary spirit and optimism.
Since receiving her BFA, Jasmine’s work has been showcased at Prizm Art Fair, Perez Museum Miami, ZuCot Gallery, Eyedrum, MINT Gallery, and Echo Contemporary. She has received residencies from Hambidge and Midtown Alliance. She was awarded grants from RedBull, Sprite, WISH ATL, and Dream Warriors Foundation and fellowships from Southern Graphics Council International and TILA Studios. She has worked with [adult swim] and Nike. Currently, Jasmine is the 2023 recipient of Living Walls Abroad Fellowship.
Jasmine continues her practice in Atlanta, GA.
