Interested in screen printing? Want to print your own T-shirt, apparel, or greeting cards?

In this class you will learn about the basic materials and techniques you’ll need for screen printing at home through watercolor monotypes and hand-applied stencils. In the first project, students will create abstract compositions with watercolor pigments printed on paper, putting a graphic-like twist on watercolor painting. In the second project, students will learn hand-applied stenciling techniques and will have the opportunity to print on any substrate (paper, T-shirt, fabric, etc.).
