Silkscreen, one of the most versatile and widely used methods of printmaking, will be explored through demonstrations and self-initiated projects. Painters and photographers will find a new way of expressing their ideas through screen printing. Images can be made using hand-drawn separations, photographic film, digital separations and photocopied images. Printing on canvas, T-shirts, wood, metal and glass, as well as large-scale works, are all possible with silkscreen. Large-scale digital output is available. Water-based silkscreen ink is used in class allowing for soap-and-water cleanup.
Note: Printshop facilities are available outside of class hours.
