Pixel to Print: Screen Printing with Photographic Imagery
Students use original photographic imagery as source material to create multi-layered and dynamic screen prints. Participants learn step-by-step details of the screen printing process including screen preparation (exposing and washing), halftone transparency creation, registration, and printing. Additional layering methods include exploratory paper dyeing techniques, flocking, and hand-generated transparencies. The goal of this class is to push the possibilities of screen printing, transforming photographic images into multi-layered dynamic prints. Students leave the class with a foundational understanding of the screen print process and a collection of unique prints.
