Produced in collaboration with the San Francisco Unified School District Arts Department, In/Site features a selection of works by students from San Francisco International High School as well as The Wilderness Arts and Literacy Collaborative (WALC) at Downtown High School.

Embarking on a range of themes, such as empowerment, protection, fantasy, time travel, and climate, the works on view are introspective and reflective in nature, providing unique insights into each artist’s understanding and perception of a changing world. Presented alongside this selection or works is a mural, designed and executed specifically for this site by students from International High School.

Free Third Saturday Workshop:

Join us Saturday, April 15 from 2-4pm in the SFArtsED Gallery for a free cyanotype making workshop led by SFUSD Art Educator, Katrina Certeza, who teaches at San Francisco International High School. Her students are among the artists featured in the In / Site exhibition. Learn how to make cyanotypes – a blue-toned print created with the power of the sun along with your imagination! Create your own unique image at this free all-ages workshop. Materials will be provided, and drop-ins are welcome. Katrina Certeza is a Manila born, Bay Area-based urban art educator. Her experience of immigrating to the United States from the Philippines as an adolescent informs her teaching and art practice. As an art mentor, she hopes to share the message that art is a powerful tool for self-expression and connection —a universal language that allows us to communicate with others on a deeper level.
