ART 262 Screen-printing
This course is an introduction to the basic techniques, processes and history of screen-printing. Screen-printing has commonly been used as a graphic art form for printing posters and signage, but is also an important medium for artists. Screen-printing is valued for its straightforward process, its expedient creation of large editions, the variety of materials it can print onto, and for its integration of hand-drawn, photographic and digital images. It has a history of satire, social/political commentary and protest and often exists in the space between popular culture and high art. Students will work through and generate a body of images associated with a self-directed theme or narrative. Culture: Art.
