Screen printing is a direct printing process that uses the stencil principle.
The aim of the workshop is to introduce students to the subject of colour “à la teinte” , as demonstrated in painting by means of opacity, transparency and the mixing of colours by addition and superposition. Students are also introduced to the development of manual and digital films, as well as the means of printing on various kinds of materials.
This type of printing raises the question of the relationship to the image, to the text, to the form and to the material. A reflection on its relationship to space and its situation is also taken into account via questions of dissemination (multiples, series and variations): publications (book, poster, leaflet, etc.), installations (different media, formats, collages…) and performance. Questions as to the choice of the use of this printing process and on the relationship between an approach linked to reproduction and/or serial, as well as its own position, implication, even commitment, are also considered.
