Materials List

This workshop will introduce you to the fundamentals of the screen print process including multiple-color registration, the use of both hand-drawn and photo stencil techniques, and printing on paper, fabric, or alternative materials. We will also touch on the elements and principles of design and how to employ them to strengthen your compositions and support your content. We will review contemporary art examples to discuss the socio-historical context of the screen print medium and how artists have pushed the medium in experimental ways in reference to this context, as well as in expanding the medium into the realm of installation and performance.

Screen-printing readily lends itself to graphic poster making and is heavily rooted in political protest art and its intrinsic accessibility relative to other printmaking methods. With this as a springboard, you will be encouraged in this workshop to explore personal narrative in reference to political voice and to take your 2-D printing process into the 3D or 4D realm.
