Silkscreen, one of the most versatile and widely used methods of printmaking, will be fully explored in this course through demonstrations and self-initiated projects. Painters as well as photographers will find a new way of expressing their ideas through screen printing. Images can be made using hand-drawn separations, photographic film, digital separations and photocopied images. Large-scale work and printing on canvas, T-shirts, wood, metal and glass are all possible with silkscreen. Water-based silkscreen ink is used, allowing for soap-and-water cleanup. Large-scale digital output is available.
