Screen Printing | Paul Van Atta

Screen Printing  | Paul Van Atta

Saturday, June 30 10am - 6pm

$120 non-associates / $102 associates ($40.00 for materials)

Screen printing is arguably the most versatile of all printing processes. Silk screen printing is a fun, non-toxic printing process that involves both photo and handmade stencils. Bring photo copies of photographs and/or hand drawings made from pencil or ink and I will show you how to prepare them for the screen. Silk screen printing is a great way to make multiples. Contemporary artists such as Banksy, Shepherd Fairy and Swoon have used this process for street art. Other artists who use this process are Beatrize Milhaze, Richard Hamilton and Kiki Smith.

In the morning we will go through the process of using a UV exposure unit. In this workshop, we’ll be applying an image directly to acetate using a variety of tools and materials, including paint pens, stencils and acrylic. In the late morning, everyone will have a chance to prep a screen with emulsion.

In the afternoon we will continue with the UV exposure unit but will include the halftone process. Halftone screen printing refers to the pattern of dots of varying sizes applied to an image of varying tones, or same sized dots applied to a tint of color. In this workshop, we’ll go over the process involved in using Photoshop to produce our halftoned images.
