Welcome to the Wonderful World of Speedball Screen Printing with Speedball Demo Artist, Sharon Jue
May 30 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Screen printing is easy to love. Come learn about everything you will need to know to start screen printing at home. Speedball Demo Artist, Sharon Jue, will demonstrate à la Julia Child, how to make a print using a paper stencil, a drawing fluid/screen filler screen, and a pre-exposed Diazo photo emulsion screen. Tips will be shared about image registration, ink layering and modifiers, and experimental printing techniques. Students will have a chance to pull a print to take home.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
After graduating from the California College of the Arts with a B.F.A. in Printmaking, Sharon Jue became an Artist-in-Residence at the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley where she is still printing today. Sock Monkeys, the Numbers 8 & 17, Punctuation Marks, Clouds, Eye Charts, Constellations, Dogs, Cellular Structures and Plants of all Persuasions populate her prints with humor and whimsy. Nothing makes her happier than mixing Extender and Trans Base into inks, overlaying colors, building up textures, and making prints. Her latest collaborative project involved making letterpress prints for the experimental music band Negativland to raise funds for their new record, “True False.”
