Fine Arts

Screenprinting is a direct printmaking technique that builds images from layers of color and can be used to create everything from custom silkscreened T-shirts to one-of-a-kind posters to fine art prints. This course will focus on the basics of screenprinting. Students will explore a combination of stencil, hand-drawn, painted, photographic, and computer-generated techniques in order to complete multiple screenprints. Through demonstrations, handouts, and informal critiques, the instructor will provide an overview of what one can achieve with screenprinting. The class will primarily focus on work on paper, but we will also cover some basic T-shirt and fabric printing. Nontoxic, water-based inks will be used. / Materials fee of $25 and facilities fee of $43 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 16 and above.

Prerequisite: Experience with Photoshop would be helpful if students want to work from digital files.

What to Bring: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook. A complete list of suggested materials will be discussed during the first class meeting.

What to Wear: Clothes appropriate for messy creativity or apron; closed toe shoes (no sandals).
