2016 Past Workshops

Screenprinting Intensive

Sunday, June 12, 2016
10 am to 4 pm
Adult / Teen Workshop

In this one-day intensive workshop, students will be introduced to silkscreen basics. We will examine different ways of making a screen. We will employ traditional screen-printing techniques such as stencils and the use of drawing fluid and screen filler.

In addition, students will be introduced to photo emulsion and the appropriate ways to generate film positives. Silkscreen is one of the most versatile printmaking processes. Students will be encouraged to print on a variety of materials from paper to wood panels, Plexiglas, cloth and canvas. We will use Speedball Acrylic inks. Bring ideas, drawings and photographs and see how they can be transformed and enriched by the screen printing process.
