In this intensive course, students will learn the basics of screenprinting from start to finish. This is a great class for beginners or those who need a screenprinting refresher. We will cover both digital and experimental/hand drawn stencil creation and then students will learn how to create screens. This course will cover all of the basics and later introduce some more advanced techniques such as photographic images, half-tones, using two colors, and registration. Students should come prepared with a specific project that they hope to complete, such as a set of napkins or tea towels, prints on paper, or t-shirts. With an emphasis on printing, students will leave with a basic understanding of this fundamental process.
