Last week we shared some Pyramid Atlantic workshops, which we love, but realize it may not be convenient for everyone to make it up to Silver Spring for classes. Well, city-dwellers, today is your day! Open Studio DC is offering several courses in screenprinting!
Open Studio DC is located at 1348 Florida Ave, NE (H St Corridor). Founded by Corcoran Professor Carolyn Hartmann, OSDC provides the space and supplies – from high quality inks to a huge exposure unit-that artists need to complete their screenprinting projects. Artists can rent the space in hourly up to yearly chunks.
Now, they are also offering classes. There are several workshops set up in August and September. We suggest starting with an Introduction to Screenprinting workshop in August and then trying their brand new Intermediate Workshop -4 color separation. 4 color separation, or CMYK printing, is used to re-create color photographs, very similarly to how pictures in the newspaper are printed. Check out their website for this and more workshop opportunities.
