About this Event

In this class you will learn how to make a multi-color print using one screen. You will leave the class with a 4 color print with an image size of 5" by 7". This size is perfect for handmade postcards or printing on Toddler sized t-shirts, but the principles will work on images of any size.


This class will teach:

- Basic color theory and how it applies to screen printing on paper and t-shirts.

- A discussion of screen issues and how to address them, such as emulsion, exposure times, screen reclamations.

- An understanding about registration and how it applies to the multi-color printing process.

- Additives for acrylic paint to expand your color palette for paper and fabric printing.


Prerequisites: Screen Printing - Making Screens is required (student should already own 1 screen), and the Screen Printing - Basics class is strongly encouraged.

The $5 materials fee covers supplies (paper, inks & screen resists) and will enable you to take home a set of your own hand printed postcards.
