This course will focus on the basic technical processes of screen printing including, idea generation, image development, screen preparation, registration, paper handling, and printing multi-color prints. Through demonstrations and hands on experiences, students will complete a series of projects using various methods of creating stencils on screens including, direct block-out techniques, hand-cut stencils, hand-drawn films, and digital films. Particular emphasis will be placed on color interaction, mixing, and layering. In addition to formal considerations, students will be expected to consider the content and conceptual basis of their work. Screen printing allows students to make multiple copies of their artwork quickly and efficiently, while allowing spontaneity when experimenting with color and composition. Students should expect to work both independently and collaboratively.
