Summer School: Printmaking

In this Summer School class at Studio Pavilion young print-makers will have an opportunity to explore storytelling through screen-printing!

Summer School: Printmaking

About Summer School: Printmaking

Whilst thinking of posters, of books and illustrations, we will utilise visual language and a wide range of exciting materials and techniques, including but not limited to drawing, mono-printing, screen-printing, collage and mark making to create works on paper that speak for themselves! The series of three classes will start with harnessing their imagination through showing examples of screen-printed posters that use simple shapes to narrate the story. Then we will start to sketch – here we will learn how to abstract and communicate ideas through symbols, colours and shapes. This fun and engaging class will result in a poster series that kids will be able to take home to start their own poster art collection at home.

Learning Outcomes:
Gaining fun experience in screen-printing
Learning how to blend colours
Encouraged sense to experiment with mark making
Understanding how to transform verbal into visual language
Learning diverse ways to narrate stories

Schedule:
Day 1 – Introduction to inspirational posters and illustrations made using different print-making techniques, choosing a story to illustrate, sketching the poster using drawing and painting techniques
Day 2 – preparing the screens, transporting the poster design onto the screen, lunch, printing first layers either with single colour or using colour blend
Day 3 – printing second colour layers and experimenting with collage, lunch, drawing, scratching the posters, producing a series of posters to take home, learning how to clean off the screen after printing

AGES 5 – 13

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Summer School: Printmaking are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
