Students learn simple silkscreen printmaking as they create a collaborative piece based on  the silhouettes of  plants, animals, and shapes. This workshop offers many possibilities and options depending on how many days are available. A one-day workshop allows participants to print screens on a collaborative piece such as a banner, mural, scroll, wall, or t-shirts/costumes. A two-day workshop allows participants to do a “nature walk” to select plants and actually see the process of getting the silhouettes onto the screens before printing them on day two. Multiple days allows for the project to be expanded into a literature and bookmaking project. With any option, students will develop aesthetic and design skills through use of color, repetition, pattern, rhythm, and composition in whatever they create. They will also be asked to consider nature and symbolism in any activity application. Applications to science are also made in stencil making (photo-process) and subject matter (botany, growth).

Other themes also available.
