Screen printing is one of the most popular, modern, and user friendly techniques in printmaking that encourages artistic expression for all ages. The addition of a screen printing washout station to the Art Association’s printmaking studio has opened doors for artists (intro students through advanced artists) to have access to a complete screen printing studio. Before we had the support of the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, our studio lacked the necessary equipment for successful screen printing. As a strong technique on its own, screen printing also offers an avenue for artists of other mediums (2D as well as 3D) to translate their original artwork into works on paper, fiber, glass or metal.
