Silkscreen Printmaking

Vicky Tomayko WEEK 1: June 7 to June 12 TUITION: $650 WORKSHOP: 9am-12pm DISCIPLINE: Printmaking OPEN TO ALL ON-SITE HOUSING AVAILABLE

We will investigate a variety of approaches for printing original silkscreen images in a non-toxic environment. Techniques include hand-cut stencils, direct drawing and painting, and photo-silkscreen methods. Print on paper, fabric, wood, vinyl, etc. Learn a variety of methods to create an image on a screen and learn methods for multiple color registration. Simple enough for beginners and lots of applications for the artist. Come with a project in mind or experiment with all the techniques.

Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22×30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
