A crash course in large format silkscreen printing for photographers. Learn the magic of 4 color separation to create full color hand-printed photographs in the same CMYK halftone dot method that magazines are printed. Students will learn the basics of screenprinting – preparing and exposing screens, printing by hand with silkscreen ink on paper, and preparing digital files for printing film positives. We will experiment with dot size and spot color as well as collaging and manipulating the original photographs.
