Beginning screenprinting

Oct
26
12:00 pm

In this class students will get to print a one-color design on paper they bring to class. Students must bring two copies on a transparency of their image. The image must be black and white only; no gray tone (half tone dots or cross hatching lines are fine but no washes) and sized as they would like it to print. If there is text, the image should be right-reading or positive-to-positive. We will discuss screens, coat screens, expose the transparencies on screens, wash them out, and print! Students will take home their prints. After taking the IPRC screen-print class, students will also have access to the IPRC screen-print studio during open studio hours.
