Power in the Poster

instructor: Ashley Ortiz-Diaz

category: Printmaking, Myrtle Press

for: Adults, Teens

price: $85

Power in the Poster is a screen printing workshop where printers of all levels can learn to make attention-grabbing, word-spreading, movement-shaking posters for any occasion. We’ll be going over screen printing basics and design principles used in the most eye-catching posters to learn how to make our own. We’ll compare great posters to bad posters and focus on color, composition, and word choice to draft and complete a small edition of images that are sure to get your point across. This workshop will use paper stencil screen printing so no drawing skills are necessary. Come with an idea and some creative flexibility (we’ve got plenty to share) and we’ll work together to create something you’ll enjoy making.

WHEN: Saturday April 2nd & Sunday April 3rd
