In this workshop, students will learn how to screen print, a process of printing ink through a stencil created in a framed screen. This versatile printmaking process allows for experimentation with materials such as fabric, paper, plastic, metal, wood, etc. On the first day of class, students will each make their own printing screens and learn fundamental skills in registration and working with color. On successive Sundays, participants will make two small print editions on paper: a reduction print and a three-to-four color (multiple-color) print. By the end of the course, students will have gained enough knowledge of the printing process to be able to continue work at home.
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.
