The intermediate screen printing class gives a closer look at the process of printing with silkscreen, focusing on each step in preparing artwork for two-color printing.
The class will be two consecutive Tuesdays: the first day will focus specifically on preparing screens for printing (for which students will create their own artwork), including selecting design, coating screens, and using the darkroom; the second day will focus on two-color printing techniques where the ink meets the paper. Students will create their own designs with sharpies on transparency film, so bring a design you like that we can trace (a printed picture of Spiderman, a poster you like, something meaningful to you). We will have some stock designs to choose from as well.
NOTE: This class is more hands-on than the Intro to Screenprinting Class, and we will be working exclusively with paper rather than shirts or other fabric (this keeps the cost down and allows for more trial and error).
Tuesdays, November 14th & 21st --- 6:30-8:30pm
