Screen printing is an old and versatile process with many modern uses. We present a variety of techniques and contemporary fine art applications of silkscreen printing. Students are guided through the transformation of an idea to printed image and encouraged to take a creative approach. The emphasis is on experimentation, design, drawing, and multi-color printing. Topics include hand-cut paper, film and photographic stencils, and projects provide students with multifaceted approaches to the development of their personal aesthetic.

MassArt BFA students: This course is a Drawing Projects foundation year equivalent.
