Harrington blogger Amber Moore offers a gilmpse into an exciting course offering this spring.
On Tuesday nights this spring semester, Harrington students will have the opportunity to stretch their creativity within a class taught by a truly dynamic and talented instructor, Megan Sterling.
In ELE 345 Screen Printing, design students can learn the basic techniques, processes and history of screen printing while creating multiples of their own designs by hand. This course will allow students to explore inventive uses of images, materials and forms using a variety of techniques while they create a unique series of work to add to their portfolio.
The class will also incorporate visits to workshops to see how working designers use the screen printing process in their professional practices.
ELE 345 is open to all design majors and was recently approved for master’s level credit as an ELE545 class. As the course catalog description notes, “This is not a T-shirt printing course.”
See some examples of Megan Sterling’s printmaking work above. We can’t wait to see what comes out of this class!
