During this three-hour workshop, students will turn hand-drawn images into screen print stencils. This stencil can be printed on paper to create print edition, or a t-shirt as a shirt design. The first hour of the workshop will focus on producing images suitable for the screen print process. Students will then be guided through the process of transferring the drawn image onto a screen using photo-emulsion, and using the stencil to print their images onto t-shirts and paper. T-shirts will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring others from home to paint on. No prior experience with screen-printing or printmaking is necessary. Opportunities for collaborative drawing in small groups, or amongst the entire group is encouraged.

Supplies needed: Students should bring a sketchbook of ideas or source drawings to create screen print stencils; either sketches or photocopies of personal photos for tracing and extra shirts to paint/print on.
