This course introduces students to screenprinting processes and techniques, with a broad overview of the historical reputation of screenprinting within the arena of fine art and advertising. Screenprinting provides students a method in which to create multiple works that incorporate a divergence of media and approaches. Students will utilize drawing skills, digital technology, basic design principals, personal imagery, and hand tools. Screenprinting techniques to be covered include stencils, digital design, hand drawing on film, and photo-senstive materials such as emulsion, exposure units, the dark room, and the vacuum table. Students will create a minimum of three print editions utilizing at least two colors per project. No prerequisite.
