Silk Screen T-shirt Printing for Teens with Red Roholl

Tuesday, July 12th

11:00am - 12:45pm

These fun events help participants learn about this unique and special way to express themselves. Each participant designs and prepares their own artwork and then prints a one-of-a-kind T-shirt using the Silkscreen Printing art form. We print a 2 color blend in about 1.5 hours. I bring all equipment and supplies, including T-shirts. Finished shirts are permanent, washable, and very colorful. These programs do not make a mess! As a Master Printmaker, I explain in careful detail the techniques of printing. I work closely with the participants to resolve technical questions and to help insure that their shirts are professional quality and a true reflection of their creative efforts. 

Ages 12 to 18 only.


Call 480-488-2286 to register.
