Instructor: Liz Shepherd

If you compare a digital print and a screen print of the same imagery next to each other, you will see a vast difference! Screen printing offers layering techniques that graphic artists know from Photoshop, but silkscreen results are infinitely more interesting in their imperfections. This workshop will focus on making layered, multi-colored screen prints. Juxtaposing multiple screens, images can be created that are dramatic and unexpected. We will be paying particular attention to mixing transparent colors and layering them. Workshop attendees will be provided with guidelines for image creation.
Masking will be required. The instructor is fully vaccinated.
Free parking is provided.
