Course Description

Embrace innovative silk screen methods that use the “screen as a canvas” while learning printmaking basics. Color will guide the exploration as Kat demonstrates various ways that water based ink’s transparencies and opacities are affected by the process of layering. Students will work on a small unified series of prints before choosing one or two as a springboard for making silk screen monotypes. Moving beyond the even squeegeed ink swipe, you will now experiment by drawing and painting directly on your screen using different tools and media before printing unique individual prints. Whether you are new to silkscreen or looking to infuse spontaneity into your artmaking, this will be an excellent way to both challenge yourself and simply enjoy the art of printmaking. All levels welcome.

Silkscreen Explored: Monotypes

Katharine LiBretto

Katharine is a printmaker whose work is inspired by the sublime and grandeur of the natural world and the identity of place in time. Her work seeks out and explores the ideas of God, the Universe, and our connection to it, self and each other, and to something much greater than ourselves, while creating a sense of wonder in her work that questions what we think we know. She received her BFA in 2007, in Graphic Design, at C.W. Post College/Long Island University, in New York. She studied at The School of Visual Arts’ Continuing Education program in New York City until she moved to London to develop her printmaking practice full time. Kat received her MA degree in Printmaking, with Merit, at Camberwell College of Art/University of the Arts London in 2012 and upon her return to the United States, attended Artist Residencies and founded Inky Hands Print Studio and Gallery. Kat currently lives in Plymouth, MA where she publishes her work, as well as others’, at Inky Hands Print Studio.
