This course is designed for those seeking to experiment with the Screenprint medium. Demonstrations will cover: using the screen to monotype, reductive printing, and printing with watercolor crayons. The first day will focus on digital separations in Photoshop, working with photo emulsion, and Mono printing techniques. Day two (Print Day) will be spent printing onto fabric/ t-shirts and studio time. No prerequisite. Photoshop skills are a plus but not required.
