Made famous by Andy Warhol in the ’60s, screen printing’s distinctive renderings have been transposed onto posters and tee shirts for years. In this class, you’ll learn the step-by-step process of screen printing through both demonstration and hands-on experience. During the first class, you’ll be shown the various ways of creating an image: computer-based graphics, drawing by hand, or cutting an image or images from magazines. Next, you’ll be shown the ins and outs of using screen printing equipment, gain experience printing a simple image to paper, learn to print a two-color image to paper, and finally, print a one-color image to a wearable tee-shirt. Please bring an 8 1/2 x 11 inch sketchbook, drawing pencils, and an eraser to class. Special fee includes screenprinting screen and a tee shirt to take home at the end of class. Class is limited to 10 people; no artistic experience is necessary. To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.
