ENRICH-0014 – Art: Screen Printing Workshop (ENRICH-0014_SCRE)

Screen Printing: A Hands-On Printmaking Workshop

Originally called “silkscreens,” the centuries-old art of screen printing was one of the earliest ways that humans duplicated images. The Chinese invented the art form between 960 and 1279 CE and the technique continued to grow for centuries but remained mostly unknown. Then, enter Andy Warhol whose images burst onto the scene in the 1960s, including his famous Marilyn Monroe series. Try your hand at screen printing in this fun-filled, hands-on workshop led by local artist and instructor Jennifer Ghormley who explores the basics of screen printing through stencils cut by hand. Using inspiring resource images or simple photos that you bring to class, apply what you learn to create fine art prints, posters, greeting cards and more. Emphasis will be on the range of experimentation and creative expression possible with this media. As part of the course, students will receive a screen printing kit, which includes a screen, squeegee, printing base and other supplies. (Feel free to bring a t-shirt or tote bag to create a one-of-a-kind gift!) Come away with a new appreciation for this unique art form and the skills to create your own works of art at home. No previous art experience necessary.
