IN HOUSE PRINTING
La Plazita has a silk screen printing and design space for youth in our community to express their talents as artists and develop skills that will launch them into self-sufficiency and promote entrepreneurship opportunities that will effectively encourage them in thinking about business, innovation, arts and crafts as viable economic ventures. Our primary goal is to make a positive change in the lives of marginalized local youth in our communities. LPI provides high-risk youth with healthy and positive alternatives to detention and encourage them to pursue their passion, increase their skills, while instilling a sense of cultural pride, non-violence and self-determination. We support our local youth and adults in the criminal justice system and general community in order to provide learning opportunities and trade development. A way to speak without speaking. A chance to offer change to the negative and monotony of visual space.
