Screen Printing Basics

This class is your introduction to screen printing and/ or orientation to the studio and equipment at HSAC. This hands-on 3 session class takes you through the basics of creating screens, printing, and troubleshooting.

You’ll spend time with the design process as well and learn multiple techniques for creating screen-ready artwork. Get familiar with the studio workings at HSAC and comfortable with the steps to creating projects in a print studio. Open to beginners and those with previous screen printing experience.

Screen Printing Basics is a prerequisite for other screenprinting classes at HSAC.

The classes are limited to 12 students. The 3 session classes cost $200, with all materials included in price. But we suggest bringing a notebook and pencil!
