Learn how the screen printing process can transform your drawings and photographs into unique works of art. In this exciting workshop, designed specifically for teens, students design and print their own tee shirts, posters and original works on paper. This workshop covers a variety of screen printing techniques, such as multiple-color registration and halftone printing. Become a young screen printing expert and build a growing portfolio.
Students use a variety of drawing materials and digital halftones to create graphic designs. Water-based inks are used to print the designs onto paper, tee shirts and various fabrics.
Students make images and print. Beginning with simple, single-color prints, students learn new techniques, allowing them to make more complex, multicolored images. Group discussions, slide lectures and reviewing examples from Anderson Ranch Editions give an historical and holistic understanding of screen printing in pop culture.
