March 28-29 – Andrea Garcia Flores Workshop 
University Center, Rotunda Info Table (Thursday) Oso 221 (Friday) | 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 
In the hustle and bustle of our lives, we often immerse ourselves in our individual challenges, sometimes feeling as if we are alone in our experiences. By linking with each other, we not only share our stories but also weave a fabric of trust and support. Community is the catalyst that transforms individual experiences into a collective journey of growth and strength. This workshop aims to challenge that perception, reminding us that behind every question we pose lies the possibility of finding answers, support, and understanding from those around us. Based on dialogue, advice, and words of encouragement, we will design and print a collective mural in risograph. Risograph printing is a technique best described as a “digital screen printing.” The process is similar to screen printing but with the convenience of an office copier. It's known for its vivid colors (that other printers can't produce) and its specific textures. For more information, contact Joshua Duttweiler, Assistant Professor of Art, Graphic Design, at joshua.duttweiler@tamucc.edu or 361.825.3068.
