Learn to use the dynamic process of screen printing to transform your drawings and photographs into unique works of art. In this exciting workshop designed specifically for teens, students design and print their own t-shirts, posters and original works on paper. This course covers a variety of screen printing techniques, such as multiple-color registration and halftone printing. As students hone their expertise, they will learn how to carry on their new craft at home. Each participant leaves this workshop with original prints to add to a growing portfolio.
