Screen Printing

Instructor

Gillian Pokalo

Gillian's work is the meeting place of photography, printmaking, and painting. When Gillian isn't in the studio or doing the art hustle, she is a certified art educator. She teaches PreK through 6th graders at Plymouth Meeting Friends School. She also teaches printmaking at community art centers in the Philadelphia area, such as the Main Line Art Center and the Banana Factory. Additionally, she is a demonstrating artist for Speedball Ink, and she absolutely loves sharing the magic of printmaking.

About the Demonstration

In this workshop, Gillian will show you how she incorporates her photographic imagery with her paintings by screenprinting it. She will give an overview of the screen printing process: how she goes from her photographs, to burning them to a silkscreen, to printing them. Bring your questions and/ or something to print on. Paper, ink, pre-burned screen, and squeegee will all be provided. Once you pull a print, you'll see why she uses screen printing in her artworks!
