Starting at YES, this silkscreen-based workshop will explore the potential of text to become image and image to become text – ever expanding the potential for symbols and signifiers to transform. Students will learn the basics of producing silkscreen prints with hand-cut and digital stencils. There will also be an emphasis on building transparent layers and variable editions of prints. We will share writing exercises that mutate images into text and back, developing unique ways of expressing the visual qualities of text and the literal qualities of imagery.
In order to reserve your space in the class, we require a $150 nonrefundable deposit. WSW offers a sliding tuition model for the Summer Art Institute, and you can pick your desired tuition level from the drop-down menu at check-out. If you are in a position to pay full tuition or more, we request that you do so. The pay-as-you-can model is not based on tax returns or documentation, rather your self-determined capacity to pay. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis, and you can read about our refund and cancellation policies here.
