Harlem Textile Works is helping kids from the ‘Friends Of The Children Of New York,’ by showing them how their creativity can transfer into a career as an entrepreneur, artist, or business owner, in the fields of graphic and fashion design.
The kids picked screens with graphic designs like “Sugar Hill,” written in Gothic letters and then paired it with an image of Michael dancing on his toes. They learned how to apply the ink through the silk screen onto a T-shirt using firm strokes, while a friend held the screen in place.
“This made me feel really artistic,” Michael Baez, aged thirteen, said while using a hair dryer to finish his creative Michael T-shirt.
Isn’t it great how many people are still being helped by Michael?
