You will learn to create editions of screen prints using a variety of traditional and digital methods. Particular techniques we will cover include: image composition and construction, layering, registration, editioning, and the use of photographic halftones.
What will you do in class?
Through the completion of three projects you will show a comprehensive understanding of the screen printing process and develop ways in which the medium can be incorporated into your own art practice as a tool to express your ideas. We will work on conceptual development, and competency with the screen printing process.
