7° Course: AUGUST 8 - 20, 2017
Prof. Agata Stępień - Head of the Screen Printing Studio
Assistant: Piotr Skowron, MA
The screen printing technique gives artists wide and extraordinary range of possible applications and the working process itself is so multisided that it allows one to find individual realization solutions. Screen printing is a medium which makes it possible to cross boundaries
of graphic art.
The Łódź Screen Printing Studio is a kind of a laboratory and a place where course participants may try to find and shape their own form of expression and where they get an opportunity to directly influence the technique. The studio constantly experiments and searches for new solutions. Screen printing is a technique which allows to print on the so-called difficult surfaces. Course participants will have a chance to create works on glass, plastic, metal, ceramic materials, etc.
By using photography, computer editing, xerocopying and manual techniques, course participants will be able to create very simple works, pure colour forms printed on uniform colour background or works of a painting-like quality using the technique as means of expression.
