Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) March 18, 2013
Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center will hold a hands-on, weekend workshop on the art of screen printing from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, at 3000 General Pershing Blvd. at State Fair Park.
Screen printing with photo stencils is most often associated with commercial applications such as sign making and t-shirt printing. Because of this, most people assume that a well-appointed professional shop is required to achieve proper results. The focus of this workshop will be to dispel this myth and show techniques that can be utilized to incorporate this exciting and versatile process into the simplest of studio situations.
The screen printing workshop will be led by University of Oklahoma professor, Curtis Jones. Mr. Jones was born and raised in Renton, Washington, a suburb 10 miles southeast of Seattle. He attended the University of Washington, where he received a BFA in Printmaking- focusing in Zinc Plate Etching- in 1994. After graduating, he spent several years working as a freelance graphic designer/ odd job doer before returning to graduate school in 2001. In 2003, Curtis received his MFA in Printmaking from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, his graduate studies focused on screen printing and installation art. Curtis accepted a professorship at the University of Oklahoma in 2005, where he has worked ever since.
The workshop costs $110 and is appropriate for all skill levels. Supplies are included with registration. Space is limited. Register in-person at Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center or call 951-0000. Online registration is also available: http://www.oklahomacontemporary.org
