Basic Screen Printing for Teens

August 07, 2011
Sundays, 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Gamble Education Center
In this late-summer workshop, teens will learn how to screen print on t-shirts and other fabrics. Participants will create hand-generated and photomechanical stencils for their own designs on t-shirts, garments, or fabrics they bring to class. Some art homework will be required between classes. This workshop teaches basic techniques that can be applied to at-home projects after the class is completed. Participants will need to bring in sketches of design ideas and t-shirts (all-cotton works best) for the first day of class. All other materials will be provided in class.
 *Please note, this class has been combined with the adult screen printing workshop.
Instructor Jason Engelhardt received his MFA in printmaking from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and has worked with master printers on limited edition screen prints for artists such as Robert Indiana, Marisol, Chuck Close, Nancy Spero and others.
