CEPR 162 SU01: Introduction to Silkscreen

Jun 8
Jun 11

Screen-printing techniques provide artists with a simple method of applying their images and ideas to a wide variety of materials and surfaces. Expand your image-making options by learning the basics of screen-printing to print your hand-drawn and photographic images onto paper and alternative surfaces. Lessons in concept development, screen and surface preparation, registration and preservation culminate in learning how to establish a studio practice for continued art production and explorations.
