I spent 5 wonderful mornings last week with my class of silkscreen students. It was an intensive 5-day introduction into the wonderful world of screenprinting. There was a range of experience in the class and I think everyone learned something. We spent the first couple of days learning the basics. Then next 2 days were spent developing ideas and getting images onto the screens. By Friday, everyone was printing, with great results!
Students worked from digital photographs as well as their own imagery from sketchbooks and drawings. Some printed on cotton rag paper, some on newsprint proofs, and others on fabric. There was a lot of diversity of approaches, and lots of creativity flowing! Registration is open now for the Fall Term. Sign up at http://www.fleisher.org/workshops to join the fun!
