Express yourself through art and learn the fundamentals of screen printing in this hands-on printmaking workshop, designed specifically for teens. Use multiple screen printing techniques to make exciting works on paper, unique posters and original t-shirts. Students design images, squeegee ink through mesh screens and learn multiple-color registration. Walk away from this workshop with a variety of new printmaking skills, t-shirts and posters for friends, family and your growing portfolio.
Media & Techniques:
Students use water-based screen printing inks, digital halftones and drawing fluid to make t-shirts, original prints and posters. Watercolor monotype is introduced as an additional technique to incorporate into prints.
Each day we design, draw and print, building from single-color prints to more complex, multicolor prints. Group discussions, slide lectures and examples from Anderson Ranch Editions give an historical and holistic understanding of screen printing in pop culture. Emphasis is on active work and experimentation.
