The Screen Printing courses focus on the multiple techniques available to students in creating unique graphic images with this versatile stencil process. Students will explore the use of hand drawn as well as digital approaches to making a series of editioned prints and/or unique applications which consider the use of color, layering, transparency and opacity. The class will also introduce the potential for screen printing to be applied to a variety of mediums and surfaces, such as painting, photography and collage. Additional materials fee will apply.
This highly versatile print process has been a favorite of the contemporary artist for decades due to its flexibility and the ability to easily work with color as well as printing on a wide variety of surfaces. This introductory class will demonstrate traditional graphic techniques of hand painted and cut film separations, registration systems and the use of digital film output, an essential component in the field of professional screen printing practice. Working with transparent and opaque color palettes will be introduced as well. After two initial projects are completed, the student will be free to pursue the medium and apply it to their other areas of artistic practice, if desired. Student pin ups and critiques will be an ongoing part of the class. Outside studio time is required to develop skill in the process. Additional materials fee will be charged.
