We offer year-round instruction for girls to bring their audacious ideas to life. With three after-school sessions (fall, winter, spring), six weeks of summer programs, and weekend workshops, girls can begin or continue along multiple pathways at Girls Garage. From woodworking and carpentry to MIG welding and screenprinting, our programs challenge girls to use technical skills, creativity, and their individual voice to make a positive impact on our community.
This no-cost class challenges high school girls to make large-scale graphic posters and installations in response to issues that are meaningful to them. Girls will learn screen printing techniques to translate ideas into graphic activist art!
Advanced Print Studio is a new, no-cost art program for high school girls and young womxn interested in developing their creative voice while exploring risograph printing, photographic mediums, creative/poetic writing, block printing, zine-making, and more. This is a great program for girls who have already participated in Protest + Print and are interested in continuing their art-making skills in a supportive, collaborative, studio-based environment.
Our Advanced Design/Build program is a year-round cohort of our most committed builder girls. This cohort brings together 9th-12th grade girls from diverse backgrounds to tackle complex, community-based projects designed and built by girls themselves.
This week-long institute introduces 9th-12th grade girls to multiple design and building techniques, skills, media, and a community of fearless builder women. From graphic design and screen printing to carpentry, welding, and architectural drafting, girls will explore the possibilities of building in their own lives, learning, and futures. This program is by application only, at no cost to participants if accepted, and limited to a cohort of 12 girls.
Over a week-long "bootcamp for builders" experience, girls will design and build projects to take home as well as projects responding to real-world challenges. Along the way, girls will learn skills in carpentry, graphic design, metalwork, collaboration, and teamwork. Our summer camps are taught by talented female educators and builders with decades of experience.
