Silkscreening workshop for kids (ages 10-14 recommended.)

January 26th and February 2nd, 9th, and 16th. Time: 10am-12noon.

Fee: $20 per session. It is recommended that students attend all four weeks. The fee covers supplies although students willl need to bring in a t-shirt on week 2.

Course Description: This 4-week course is designed to introduce kids to silkscreen printing and foster in them an interest in this exciting, accessible, and versatile print medium which has a long history in poster, t-shirt and DIY graphic design. Through building small screens in the first week which the kids can take home, to emulsing and exposing their own designs for printing on both paper and fabric, participants will gain valuable skills and abilities, while also creating works that they can keep.

Instructors: Morgan Charles & Karla Smith. Morgan and Karla both learned silkscreen printing while studying graphic design at Concordia. In 2004, they (along with another friend) started a small silkscreening company called Atelier Baraque, which specialized in designing and printing original bedlinens in various basement "studios." Morgan now works as a graphic designer and is pursuing her graduate degree in communications, while Karla works as a textile designer and product manager for a large housewares company. They both enjoy the hands-on quality of silkscreening as a remedy to the hours spent in front of the computer. Coincidentally, both of them have also spent summers as Arts & Crafts camp counselors. They hope this goes better.

Ateliers de sérigraphie pour jeunes (10 à 14 ans)

Description du cours: Ce cours de quatre semaines a pour but d'initier les jeunes à la sérigraphie, une technique d'impression passionnante et versatile souvent utilisée pour agrémenter T-shirts, affiches et objets d'artisanat. Les participants monteront de petits écrans de sérigraphie personnalisés et pourront rapporter à la maison leurs propres créations sur papier et tissu.

Professeures: Morgan Charles et Karla Smith sont toutes deux bachelières en design graphique et fondatrices d'une l'entreprise de sérigraphie spécialisée en impression artisanale de literie, Atelier Baraque. Elles sont d'avis que la sérigraphie est beaucoup plus amusante que des heures passées devant l'ordinateur!
