Using contemporary silkscreen methods, artists will work towards silkscreen printing one and two-color imagery on textiles and t-shirts. Artists will learn the steps needed to create stencils, expose screens and develop alternative printing techniques using acrylic inks, and become familiar with all the tools, techniques and materials to print textiles and t-shirts. No experience necessary!
Students enrolled in this class should anticipate bringing the following items:
-Up to 5 clean (new -if possible- and washed, light-colored) t-shirts
-1 yard of non-polyester fabric
-An apron and/or latex gloves (not kitchen gloves)
-A sketchbook to take notes
