Screen printing class


A local school, Broad Bay, invited me to teach some screen printing to Year 7 and 8 students. I tied the theme in with their science topic of butterflies and yesterday we went to the Otago Museum to draw some beautiful specimens in the collection (thanks Cody). It was so interesting to learn that the specimens are so delicate that even if you sneeze on them bits can fall off! Students wrote poems about butterflies and I translated these onto photostencil screens. Then the students made paper stencils as well and screenprinted with acrylic paint on laser cut shapes...some gorgeous results ready to fly off to their new homes!
