ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
In this workshop each artist will produce a large 16” x 20” “portrait”. We will use some of the methods covered in previous workshops, but everyone will be asked to submit a good, clear, in focus image that will be prepared in halftone ahead of time, and then exposed to screen. Students can add underlying color, with the main image printed on top. Although a laptop is not required or expected for this workshop, those interested in understanding how to produce halftone images, might want to bring a laptop with Photoshop installed if you have that program. Requirements for this workshop; understanding of screen printing (or have taken the Beginning Silkscreen workshop).
