Serigraphy or Silk Screen is a printmaking technique that can be applied to fine art prints, graphic design, and photographic experimentation. The course covers various stencil making techniques, such as paper and cut stencils, and direct block out. The main emphasis is on photographic emulsion techniques using hand-drawn acetates, photocopies, computer printouts and photographs with litho film or diffusion transfer film. Instruction in darkroom procedures, ink mixing, registration and printing methods will be given.
SRISA studio courses will have personal and course materials to be purchased in Florence. A complete list will be provided with the syllabus on the first day of class.
