Self Help Graphics & Art’s (SHG) acclaimed Professional Printmaking Program offers artists the opportunity to create fine art limited edition serigraphs & monoprints through a peer-led approach that is dedicated to providing an environment that nurtures and supports our artists’ creativity and careers.
Día de los Muertos
For 43 years Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) has organized one of the most popular Día de los Muertos events in Los Angeles and perhaps the oldest Day of the Dead commemoration in the country. This program is unique in that it provides the community with a season of activities through out the fall, to celebrate and prepare for Día de los Muertos.
ARTS ENGAGEMENT & EDUCATION
SHG’s Art Workshops attract all levels of artists to work in a variety of art mediums such as intaglio printmaking, DIY silkscreening, and many other forms. Self Help Graphics is one of the few places in Los Angeles that offers artists a space where they can develop artistically in a peer to peer setting.
In support of local artists, Self Help Graphics & Art holds annual craft and art fairs each December and February that features fine art, prints, adorable and distinctive art, jewelry, housewares, clothing and crafts by local artists and artisans.
BARRIO MOBILE ART STUDIO
The Barrio Mobile Art Studio (BMAS) was founded as a program that works towards equity and social justice through art. SHG’s BMAS mission is to nurture emerging artists and present Latino art to a broad audience and address the vast demographic that is Los Angeles, while also expanding audiences and community beyond East Los Angeles.
The Annual Print Fair & Exhibition is a highly anticipated showcase filled with panel presentations, demonstrations, and an opportunity for artists that have participated through Self Help Graphics & Art’s Professional Printmaking Program to show off their work created throughout the year.
