This workshop focuses in on the possibility and potential for using transparent color-layering in silkscreen on paper. Students will learn how to mix colors using pigment with transparent acrylic ink and building color and blend roll layers to find the sweet-spot with transparency and vibrancy. The workshop will include instruction on the foundations of creating and translating imagery for the screen, stencil-making processes, and registration. In addition, we will practice building and experimenting with color layers, noting unique and serial methods for painterly screenprints. Ultimately, students will use this stencil-based print method to focus on mixing and building transparent ink layers for rich and vibrant prints that surpass our expectations of water-based inks.
