$49 for Three-Hour Screenprinting Class for One ($130 Value)
Small classes of up to 14 pupils enter the studio on Tuesday nights at 6 p.m. to learn the history of screenprinting and how to transfer designs from concept to reality in a variety of artistic styles. Fugscreens Studios' founder, Zissou Tasseff-Elenkoff, leads the interactive, hands-on workshop, giving constructive critiques as participants create an instructor-chosen design. Zissou supplies all materials, and students receive two 13"x18" silkscreen prints of the predetermined design.
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.
