In this three session workshop students will use one of our prepared screens for printing a four-color image onto paper. Students will learn how to prepare a screen, register the image, and screen print using four colors. The image will be printed onto an 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper size and we plan to create an edition of 5 prints per student. If time allows students will have time to create additional prints. Students will also learn how to clean up and reclaim the screens properly. Students are encouraged to bring fabric or other materials for printing using one color of their chosen design as well. A syllabus with resources for supplies and equipment will be provided.
