Screen Print Activity tomorrow at Art Camp

Tomorrow is “Art Camp” at the Ohio River Valley Artist Guild.  I volunteered to do a screen printing activity with the kids.


To get the screen ready, I paint the design with a drawing fluid.


Once dry, I pour a blocking fluid across the top of the screen.


And use a card to squeegee the blocking fluid across the design.


The drawing fluid repels the blocking fluid (like oil and water)


After the block fluid dries, I wash the drawing fluid out with cold water


The stencil is complete and ready to print.


Everyone will create their own design with stencils: which will be placed on the easel part of the design,  then printed on their T-Shirt. 

In theory, it should be fun…wish me luck!
