Screen Printing Using Dry Pigments
This workshop explores the exciting and exploratory process of directly screen-printing dry color pigments such as pastels, charcoal, and graphite to develop imagery on paper and other substrates. This experimental approach embraces exploration and stretches the conventional applications of the medium by using image alteration to create a dynamic series of varied multiples of an image. Imagery can be hand-generated or photographic. The technique is introduced as a single process procedure, which can then be used to investigate new ways to discover print qualities to strengthen images and concepts.
