Printing with silkscreens is most often associated with t-shirts, band posters, and of course, Andy Warhol’s ubiquitous soup cans. In this class, students will learn the basics of burning screens with both hand drawn and computer-manipulated designs, as well as explore new ways of subverting the medium by printing on alternative materials such as plastic, fabric, fiberglass mesh, etc.
The course will be broken into two sessions; during the first half of class, students will design and burn our designs onto our screens. During the second half, students will experiment with color mixing, layering, and building unique prints on the materials of their choice, paper excluded. Students will leave with a thorough knowledge of silkscreen processes, but will discover a multitude of new applications to apply to both their fine art and design practices.
Tuition: $80 (all materials included but you may bring your own reusable set of gloves and apron)
