screenprinting phase I

Last week I started my first session of screen printing classes at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Our first assignment was to collect a set of 10 images from 3 different sources. The end result being a collage. I’m not really a fan of collages. I like the simplicity of clean lines and structured images. To me collages just seem messy and remind me of some of the journals I used to keep in high school. In order to avoid the “collage effect” I chose to scan in the silhouette of a few plants, a few black and white photographs, as well as a couple of patterns I found on the internet. I pre-scanned them all as line art before going to Kinko’s and copying them onto transparency paper. Here are a few of the scans that I’m looking forward to making prints with.

Tonight’s class I’ll be starting the actual process of transferring the images from the transparency film to paper – updates on the process soon to come!
