Intermediate Screen Printing: CMYK

$50

with Tyler Keylon

Calendar Nov 17, 2019 at 1 pm

Participants will create an edition of 5 8"x10" CYMK silk-screen prints, and be given a handout on the basics of converting their full-color image into a silkscreened reality! Students should provide their image the week prior so the instructor can process all of the images for printing. The class will be spent going briefly over the process, experimental approaches to CYMK printing, and printing their small editions. We will also print various layers from each image onto a larger sheet of 19"x25" paper to create a CMYK collage.
