Learn this popular printmaking technique, which can transform any drawing into graphic and colourful prints. This six-week introductory hybrid course is your chance to learn how to prepare screens, make stencils, transfer images onto screens, mix custom inks, register layered images, and screen print your final images onto paper. Explore stencil building and colour experiments at home with interactive activities, then come to SNAP for your designated time for one-to-one individualized and personal instruction from Artist Erica Vaskevicius.
