Description

Class held on Wednesdays: MARCH 6, 13, 20, 27 APRIL 3 10

In this 6 session course you will learn the basics of processing an image and executing a silkscreen print in a casual studio setting. All experience levels are welcome and accomodated. The course provides a solid foundation of knowledge and guidance to produce a layered silkscreen print. Experienced printers are encouraged to expand their practice and explore the possibilities of the medium. Once the course is complete, printers are welcome to access the shop with confidence during AIR Open Studio hours (M,T,TH,F 5-9pm).

Classes are maximum six participants for personalized instruction by Teaching Artist Matt George.

  • Students will create a 1 to 4 color print using their desired image

  • Basic Photoshop image manipulation and prep for screen-printing

  • Registration and set up for multiple color printing

  • Ink mixing and manipulation (transparency, modifiers, etc)

  • Printing, Clean-up and screen maintenance (reclaiming)

  • In addition to providing technical information and creative insight, for many this course is an excellent way to become oriented to studio procedures and the culture of Artists Image Resource. Students frequently retake the course to develop their ideas further, move on to become patrons of our Open Studio program, and/or become collaborators in the ongoing experiment that is the Artists Image Resource print lab.
