The T-Shirt Has a Voice is a class that includes both the history and design culture around ‘the t-shirt’ and how it is one of the most popular forms of public art and advertisement that we, as a community, are exposed. The class will learn the technical aspect of software tools, color, and composition skills. In addition, they will also learn about specific moments/figures in history and how those specific events inspired people to create t-shirts as a response to what was going on around them.
