Crash Course in Silkscreening

Crash Course in Silksreening

Saturday, December 2nd & 9th, 12-5pm

2 DAY WORKSHOP

Using contemporary silkscreen methods, artists will approach printing through painterly and photographic techniques, creating two editions of prints through a combination of images and the layering of colors. Artists will familiarize themselves with various image-making and inking techniques, and learn the steps needed to create a small edition using water-based inks. This technique-driven class is a perfect starting point for artists wanting to print posters and broadsides, to artists wanting to explore art-making in new ways. No experience necessary.

Students enrolled in this class should anticipate bringing the following items:

  • Sketchbook or notebook Images (on a CD/Flash Drive/via email) that you are comfortable using as jumping off points or for experimentation purposes, as well as images to consider using as a final image. The more images provided, the better the opportunity for learning. Students can provide drawings, text, or photos.
  • One roll of paper towels
