Serigraphy: Layered Silk Screen Printing

Session Length: 2 hours
Cost: $320.00 up to 20 students (+$16.00 per student to 30 max.)
Program of Study Connections: Visual Art
Media and Technique: Screen Printing, Drawing

This studio allows students to create a screen printed image with a focus on the artistic application of this medium.  The printing ink is layered to create a multicoloured image.  Following a brief introduction into printmaking and the various ways it has been used over time, the students will print 2 flats of different colours.  While the first layer is drying, the students design a template using a photocopy of an image as a reference, which they will print layered over the initial flats, and additional un-inked substrate, using a different colour.

Using a reference image, students will explore how artists modify popular images to share their own stories. Students will consider how to change images to give them new meaning.
