NOTE: All Verge Center for the Arts classes in March have been postponed and labs have been cancelled.
In this workshop, participants will be exploring a painterly method of Screen Printing, known as Drawing Fluid, and Screen Filler. It provides an effective way for artists to transfer their creative imagery onto a variety of surfaces; commonly printed on paper, and fabric. This easily accessible technique allows for a very hands on approach to create a printable screen that requires few steps, and is relatively inexpensive. Each image will be drawn, then painted directly on the screen with brushes, but it is ideal for free-hand, abstract and experimentation. Participants will develop an understanding of fundamental printmaking terms, materials, setting-up and pulling a print. Participants will emerge from this workshop with a greater understanding for Screen Printing, and including their very own set of vibrant prints. Also, the class will be trading prints with fellow artists! It is welcomed to have their simple imagery prepared prior to but not necessary. The class will specifically focus on producing one of a kind prints on paper. No experience is required!
