The Art of Screen Painting with John Iampieri
Screen Painting's origins go back to 1913 in East Baltimore, MD. This very unique art form has adorned over 200,000 windows and door screens for decades, creating privacy for row house owners. It was discovered that “you can see out, but no one can see in”; the catch phrase still to this day.
Each individual will learn about the history, tools, and techniques necessary to successfully paint on a wood-framed screen.
