IdleBeats founder Nini Sum quotes “It’s a great pleasure to work with Volcom on the first live screen printing tour event in China.

Below are the selected artists who represent various backgrounds and approaches to art and design:
• Nini Sum – http://www.ninisum.com/
• Jellymon – http://jellymon.com/
• Elephant – http://www.elephant77.com/
• Wang Meng – http://blog.sina.com.cn/dorasmeng
• Ca Zhuxi – http://blog.sina.com.cn/cbd
Each artist has created a library of Volcom inspired imagery to be used as screen prints during the workshop. Also, the Volcom Art Department in Costa Mesa, California will be reviewing these designs and choosing one from each artist to be printed on limited edition t-shirts.
NeochaEDGE (http://edge.neocha.com) co-founder Sean Leow explains “among a youth generation that is increasingly connected by digital means, screen printing is a cool, low-tech way for kids to meet up, roll up their sleeves, get inspired and interact with artists to create a unique piece of artwork.” The Volcom Screen Printing Workshop will be open to the public, where guests can talk with the five attending artists, learn the basics of screen printing, and choose a Volcom design to screen print themselves.
新茶锋潮的合作创始人Sean Leow说:“对以网络为联络基础的年轻人来说, 丝网印刷是个低科技又超酷的方式可以让他们聚在一起、卷起袖子、通过艺术家交流来获得灵感，还能参与制作属于自己独一无二的艺术品”Volcom工作坊将对大众开放，人们可以和艺术家直接交谈来学习丝网印刷的基础知识，并且选择一款设计自己动手印刷。
The vibe of the Volcom Screen Printing Workshop will be “backyard barbeque.” For those missing that backyard feeling and for those who like the smell of a traditional bbq, this will be THE summer event. Source will be bringing the backyard indoors, with live acoustic music, bbq area, beers on tap and grass under foot. In the midst of an urban backyard environment, screen printers will be set up in the middle getting messy. To all guests, be prepared for some painting fun!
Leading up to the workshop, Volcom will be looking for a sixth artist to take part in the event. Through the NeochaEDGE online platform, artists nationwide can submit Volcom art samples to participate in the online campaign. Artists will be judged on the quality of their submission, creative use of the Volcom logo, and depth of creativity. One winner will be chosen during the Beijing source workshop and he or she will win “one month of free clothes” from Volcom.
