Silkscreen is one of the easiest and most versatile of all print media. It can be as simple as one color or as complex as multiple layers of bright, transparent colors. It lends itself equally to hand-drawn imagery and digitally manipulated pho- tographs. In our state-of-the-art computer lab, students can produce large editions of look-alike images as well as multiple examples of one-of-a kind versions. We will begin with one-color prints in small editions and progress to multicolored prints of edition sizes. Silkscreen lends itself to materials such as canvas, wood, metal and fabrics, and students are encouraged to experiment with materials of their choosing. Water-based inks allow for easy soap-and-water cleanup.
