Swoon in Zambia

Brooklyn Street Art reports on a recent trip by artists Swoon and Matt Small, gallerist Mike Small (of Black Rat Projects), and blogger RJ Rushmore to a school in Kabwe, Zambia, where they taught print-making, linotype carving, portraiture and collage. For three days, writes Josh McPhee at JustSeeds, the group led workshops with all of the 200 or more kids at the Robert Shitima School, a "non-denominational facility run by The Brothers of the Sacred Heart where orphans and children living in the shantytown of Makululu (one of the worlds largest slums) can get free k-9 schooling."
