Silkscreening: Alternative Processes in Silkscreening
1:00pm — 4:00pm
About The Workshop
Traditional printmaking can often feel constrained to the physical space of a print shop. One of the challenges often faced by young artists and designers is gaining access to printing equipment once they have left an academic institution. Learn to print from home in this workshop using tools and techniques in your own personal space. This class introduces students to the process of screen printing; the alternative process of using watercolor lets students create artwork that mixes the control of the screen with the loose, painterly qualities of watercolor. Kits will be sent to all participants making it easy to follow along with the instructor via remote video learning.
Cross Disciplinary Connections
The process of screen printing applies to Fashion, Communication Design, Architecture, and Studio Art. If you are curious about screen printing or printmaking, you are in the right place.
Students will produce a unique screen print during the workshop. Students will have an understanding of the screen printing process and be aware of next steps if they wish to pursue the process further.
