This seven-week workshop-style course dives into the popular and fun printmaking technique of silk screen. Students will create vibrant, multicolor prints using water-based silk-screen materials while exploring their own style and applying this popular method to their own imagery. The direct on-screen stencil techniques, such as screen filler/drawing fluid or wax crayon, as well as indirect photo-emulsion methods of drawing on Mylar will be shown, and digital file preparation will be explored. Stencil monotype printing and mixed-media approaches will be covered. Students will learn how to set up their own DIY studio and will learn all aspects of preparation, setup, and production of fine art prints. No prior experience with printmaking is necessary.
The class will be limited to 10 students to allow for more personal instruction.
MATERIALS: Ink and most studio materials will be provided with the $30 materials fee, payable directly to the instructor on the first day of class. Students are responsible for paper and screen frames. Instructor will discuss materials with the class during the first meeting.
