Power Up is an afterschool program for young African American women at The Andy Warhol Museum and Artists Image Resource (AIR), an artist run non-profit print studio on Pittsburgh’s historic Northside. Participants learn design and print skills for use in the production and distribution of print materials on important health related topics. Students meet with artists, designers, local grassroots organizations and health care workers to create posters, stickers, zines, and pamphlets that can be used in the students' communities and beyond.
