Print Blitz!: alternative screen printing methods

Concept

Investigate print media trends in contemporary culture while acquiring the necessary tools needed to make an artistic statement in the medium of screen printing. This workshop focuses on water-based photo screen printing techniques as well as low-tech stencil printing methods. Technical demonstrations cover beginning photo screen printing processes, one- and two-color registration, a combination of hand dyeing, draw back into, manipulation of the surface, water-soluble markers and hand-cut and photo stencil methods. Each student creates experimental, unique prints and acquires a new skill set in printmaking techniques.
