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.
Laptop PC or MAC
We recommend you to use a Lap Top with sufficient RAM memory and a powerful graphic card. We also recommend a 13 to 15' screen.

Lauriane L'Eplattenier from Switzerland - Fashion Design Graduated Student
My name is Lauriane L’Eplattenier from Switzerland. I have just graduated from Marbella Design Academy and have been awarded a first class BA Hons Fashion Degree by the Marbella Design Academy's UK partner University in London - United Kingdom.
“To me, Fashion is not restricted to only clothing and beauty, but it is all encompassing in creativity and expression. Fashion can define you as a person.
I have during my study at Marbella Design Academy learnt so much about fashion design and the industry, from freehand drawing to developing clothes collections to the actual sewing and finishing. I have also learnt a lot about Marketing, how to make your own business, fashion show presentation and even jewellery making.
You study with students from more than 45 different nationalities and cultures. It is a great inspiration with so many different approaches and ideas for collections.
The students are offered great opportunities to enter in the working world with design competitions and fashion shows during their study. The Fashion design students are encouraged to take part in several real life fashion shows and competitions, such as Malaga Fashion Week, Runway Gibraltar New Designer Competition, Marbella Luxury Week-End, and Marbella Crea & Starlite Festival. I have participated in them all and won two times at Malaga Fashion Week and has also won Frankfurt Style Award. It has been a unique experience to participate among other creative talents and get constructive feedback as well as advice from the professionals within the Fashion Design industry.
Our Fashion teachers are great. Always helping us to realise our wildest ideas and build our own style.
I really liked studying at Marbella Design Academy because we had no creative restrictions. We were given the opportunity to experiment and create exactly what we wanted."

"I chose Marbella Design Academy because the school is multicultural and offers a world class education in a congenial environment. Definitely the weather and live style that comes with it is great too. I have just received some job offers waiting for me when I finish, so I look forward to my future."
Jessica, from Germany - Interior Architecture Student
I’m studying Interior Architecture, about to finish my First Year. For me, choosing Marbella Design Academy was definitely not hard. I fell in love with the University the first day I looked at their website and even went visiting it but the location, Spain was another good point for me. Being part of this University, is like having a family far away from home. The administration, the Professors and the students here at Marbella Design Academy are very friendly, they make you feel loved, and know exactly who you are and what type of personality you’ve got. Marbella Design Academy is more than just a university, it is your second home, you don’t even want to leave the place until late in the afternoon. They just make you gain so much experience. I live in Monda near the Academy. People are friendly, almost all the students live there. There are places in Monda, you just have to explore. There are perfect walks to let loose and get inspire, for any course. I love it.
