About Screen Printing at Marbella Design Academy

Screen Printing Summer Course

Screen printing is a method of making an image using stencils. These are attached to a mesh that is stretched over a frame. Using a squeegee, ink is pulled through the stencil to create an image. Screen printing as a process is intrinsic to graphics, advertising and packaging. This is owing to its versatility of scale, colour and, overall, the ease with which you can produce large production runs cost effectively. These factors drew fine artists to using screen printing as a medium during the 1960's pop art movement.

The first half of the course is structured so that you will learn a range of stencil making techniques within the non-photographic and the photographic spheres. Beginning with autographic (non-photographic) stencil making, we will deal with paper stencilling, direct stencilling using wax crayon / liquid filler and wax resist. We will move on to learn about the different ways of making a photographic stencil, through the use of hand drawn positives and photographic positives. Practicing with these methods you will learn how to plan a print. We will also cover setting up your workspace, ink mixing / colour mixing, paper handling, monoprinting and editioning.

The second part of the course is structured around your individual application of these techniques. Together we will work towards strengthening your image-making skills and so, your sense of authorship.

The students are welcome to bring a project of their own to be solved during the course.

The Screen Print course can be combined with our 3 weeks Photoshop Course.
