Silkscreen is a versatile medium ideal for beginners and experienced printmakers. It is especially suitable for artists interested in color. Using various materials—water-based crayons, colored pencils, gouache, watercolor, silkscreen inks, and transparent base—we will create one-of-a-kind and multiple images. We will explore transparent and opaque color, line, and texture. Basic registration, cut paper stencils, and various ways to put imagery on a screen will also be covered. Participants are encouraged to bring in drawings and proofs for further development or as a starting point for new ideas.
