Screenprint Essentials

This intensive workshop will cover the basics of water-based screenprinting while focusing on different ways an image can be manipulated, reproduced, and transformed in this medium. We’ll begin with non-digital 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 used 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. Code 06X
