Silkscreen Intensive with Visiting Artist Dominick Rapone

Silkscreen, one of the most versatile and widely used methods of printmaking, will be explored through demonstrations and self-initiated projects. Novice artists, Painters, photographers, and graphic designers will find a new way of expressing their ideas. Images can be made using hand-drawn separations, photographic film, digital separations and photocopied images. Printing on canvas, t-shirts, wood, metal, glass, and ceramics, as well as large scale works are all possible with silkscreen. The purpose of the class will be to introduce a full knowledge of silkscreen techniques for the student who is just beginning. Day one will focus on showing examples of prints, learning terminology, understanding separations and a full printing demonstration. On day two students will coat screens, expose their artwork onto their screens and finally print their works onto paper.
