Printmaker; director of operations, printmaking, BFA Fine Arts Department, School of Visual Arts
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, photographers, designers and illustrators will find new ways of expressing their ideas graphically through screen printing. Images can be hand drawn, or use photographic or digital techniques, or by using a combination of the three. Large-scale work and printing on paper, canvas, T-shirts, wood, metal and glass are all possible. Water-based silkscreen ink is used, allowing for soap-and-water cleanup. Large-scale digital output is available. Previous printmaking experience is not required.
