INTRODUCTION TO SILKSCREEN PRINTMAKINGSavanna Snow8 sessions >> Saturdays, June 9–July 2810am–2pm, Studios 1+2, $480No prerequisite.
Learn the basics of silkscreen techniques to create your own fine art prints, graphic posters, or promotional items. During this 10-week course you will build a solid foundation for screenprinting with hands-on experience and professional training in all aspects of printing—from image creation, to burning your screen, to pulling the perfect print. Through in-class demonstrations, exercises, and studio time, we will cover proper printing techniques, how to utilize materials to get desired effect(s), tips on how to store prints, and more. The last week of class we will display our completed projects and invite family and friends to celebrate with us.
