In this class, we follow one pathway through making compelling, complex color images without computers, and we investigate some of the un-mimickable graphic possibilities that appear at the moments where our hands encounter the material world.

Each student extrapolates from a photograph to create a two-layer, multi-color, boldly graphic silkscreen print. You’ll learn how to separate an image into different colors using eye, hand, and pencil; how to cut Rubylith, a stencil film, using a razor knife to prepare precise, clean-line images for printing; how to mix transparent inks and work with color gradients (a.k.a. “rainbow rolls”); and how to accurately register and screenprint a small edition of a multi-color image. At the end of the class, we do a print swap, trading our finished prints with the other students and the instructor.
