|I offer workshops for teens (and tweens) in the art of Silkscreen
Printing on T-shirts. These fun events help participants learn about
this unique and special way to express themselves.
Students learn the most popular methods of printing on T-shirts.
They design the artwork; prepare the stencils; and then print their
one-of-a-kind shirts. We usually print 2 or 3 colors in about 1 1/2
hours. I bring all equipment and supplies, including T-shirts.
Finished shirts are permanent, washable, and very colorful. These
programs do not make a mess!
T-shirt printing has proved to be extremely well received: At one
library the teens voted this the most popular program 'ever'!
Most all subject matter works well with Silkscreen Printing. As a
Master Printmaker I explain in careful detail the techniques of this
art form. I work closely with the participants to resolve technical
questions and to help insure that their shirts are professional
quality and a true refection of their efforts to Express Themselves!
These programs let participants explore something new and
different in a relaxed and fun environment. In the words of one
recent participant, "Dude, this is really cool!"
