This workshop will introduce artists to the diversity and excitement of bold painterly colors, hand drawing; delicate details and photographic images that come with Silkscreen. The workshop will cover all the basics for those unfamiliar with the process and will then expand to explore more creative and complex techniques. These techniques will include reduction printing, direct positive drawing, wax crayon stencils, color trapping, color blending, monoprints and working with digital films. The inks used are capable of printing on a variety of surfaces such as plastic, wood, and fabrics. The workshop uses only non-toxic, solvent free inks and practices environmentally safer printing methods.
