Forging original prints, distinctive apparel, and an array of eye-catching art, FugScreens Studios masterfully educates the artistically inspired in the ways of screen printing. The studio specializes in a multitude of techniques, including photographic-process printing, stencils, and textiles, and is armed with an arsenal of professional-grade inks, paper, and more. Like a mother goose guiding her goslings across the interstate, accomplished artist Zissou Tassef-Elenkoff will lead classes through a variety of subjects depending on each student's interests and may cover the history of printing, offering press apprentices examples of various methods, as well as incorporating Photoshop and Illustrator into designs. Each class culminates with the birth of two 13"x18" prints of separate design, crafted from provided materials, to hang on walls or to tack onto computer desktop backgrounds with some Gorilla Glue and a ball-peen hammer. Classes are kept to an intimate 10–14 layered limners, allowing for optimal guidance, correction, and easily asked questions.

Fugscreens Studios

The squeegee-wielding band of artists and interns at Fugscreens Studios infuses shirts, posters, and wall prints with original artwork for clients including The Dead Weather, Corona Beer, and the Aragon Ballroom. Through screenprinting classes and workshops, founder Zissou Tasseff-Elenkoff and his team reveal essential skills for silk-screening. During intro classes, students receive individual attention as they transform their own designs into colorful prints. Textile-printing classes enable students to create repeated patterns on yards of fabric, and T-shirt-printing classes instill essential skills for crafting band or family-band-reunion-tour merchandise. During private lessons, students can pursue their own design visions and brush up on their software skills with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
