Screenprinting with my Production Methods class!

I recently taught my production methods class how to screen print. I bought all the materials from Blick Art Supply and had the students each come up with a design that represented the entire class. Their are only 7 students in this class, so it made it fairly easy to fit on a small canvas bag. As a class we voted and a straight forward Helvetica solution by student, Mackenzie Freemire, was chosen. The students learned how to prepare a screen, burn their design into the emulsion, and then each had a chance to pull ink in creating the image on their own bag.
