Fall 2019 – Screenprinting with Hand-Drawn Stencils
Screenprinting with Hand-Drawn Stencils
6 Sessions >> Tuesdays, October 15- November 19
4:00-7:00pm, Print Room 1, $295
This course bridges drawing, painting and even doodling into the world of printmaking. We begin with a foundation of screenprinting skills and then will delve into more complex printing techniques such as working with masking fluids, tapes and transparent inks. Discussion and presentations of historical and contemporary printmaking that utilize these techniques will allow students to contextualize their own works and further explore screenprinting. Artists will make a portfolio demonstrating these new skills and have a deeper understanding of composition & printmaking practices. No screenprinting experience is required.
