Writing for the Screen(print) – Gaby Hurtado-Ramos

Dates: July 15 – 19, 2024
Studio: Intaglio
Tuition: Sliding Scale, $350-$1200
Lab fee: $100
Class limit: 6

In this workshop, we will be playing with the possibilities of hand-drawn stencils and text in screenprinting. Through exercises and demos in simple book forms and drawing techniques tailored for exposing to a screen, participants will make a variety of prints involving writing and mark-making. We will look at examples of artists’ books, zines, and posters as starting points for sequential and text-incorporated art. Drawing and writing prompts will be offered as a way to push language and images together in your prints. We will also experiment with color and transparency in building up images from our handmade stencils. This workshop could be a way to expand your practice, start working with text, and experiment with direct mark-making in screenprinting stencils.

In order to reserve your space in the class, we require a $150 nonrefundable deposit.
