Studio Art: stencil screenprinting

In Studio Art class we are currently working on our stencil screenprint and yesterday we looked at some of the history and types of printmaking from early cave paintings to early Chinese printmaking techniques to woodblocks by Albrecht Dürer and Japanese artists such as Katsushika Hokusai to Alois Senefelder's  Lithography technique invented in 1798 to modern street art such as Obey (Shepard Fairey) and Banksy.  This week we will but cutting our stencils and on Friday we will have a short quiz on what we learned.
