Using contemporary screen-printing methods, artists will approach printing through direct and photographic means, creating an edition of prints through a combination of image and color. Artists will familiarize themselves with various image-making and inking techniques, and learn the steps needed to create a small edition of screen prints using water-based inks. This technique-driven, no-stress workshop is a perfect starting point for artists wanting to explore artmaking in new ways. No experience necessary; beginners are encouraged!
INSTRUCTOR WILL SUPPLY MOST MATERIALS @ $37 PER PERSON MATERIAL FEE
