Detailed Curriculum Connections


Screen Printing Workshops (Grades 4 - 12)

Explore screen printing techniques with an experienced printmaker! Students will learn the fundamentals of creating patterns, designs and images using the silkscreen printing method to create a unique print to take home. Finished fabric may be used in a follow-up project at school.
