We’ll begin with analog techniques such as hand-cut/hand-drawn stencils, reduction prints, and crayon monoprints. Then we’ll focus on image manipulation in Photoshop for output to digital transparencies for use with photo emulsion on the screens. Students may create a series of edition prints on paper or one-of-a-kind prints on different substrates that can be incorporated into other media such as painting or sculpture. All levels. Print studio.
