This six-week course will provide multiple approaches to the process of screenprinting and allow participants of all experience levels to create accomplished works in a matter of weeks. We will build upon a foundation of screen preparation, with material and equipment tutorials, and basic studio etiquette before moving into more advanced screenprinting techniques. This class will cover hand drawn and computer generated film-making and stencil techniques, 4-color separation photographic process, registration strategies, and several monoprinting processes that utilize the screen.
