Screen printing is super at the library

Do you want to stand out from the crowd with a cool, unique look? Local teens can add a personal touch to their wardrobes while learning a new lifelong skill with an afternoon of Super ‘T’ Screen Printing workshop, coming to the Tecumseh Public Library at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7. Registration is required and can be done using the online form.

Instructor Curtis Jones brings a wealth of experience in screen printing and teaching about it. He has been a faculty member in the University of Oklahoma School of Art and Art History for 10 years. Prior to that he taught at the San Francisco Art Institute, Richmond Art Center and California College of Arts and Crafts, where he earlier received his master’s degree.

In the workshop, participants will learn from the ground up about the process. That begins with some introduction to screen printing in general and a basic look at how to use the equipment, before the creative process of working on designs begins.

This program is a starting point for new screen printing equipment that will stay with the Pioneer Library System as components in one of its STEAM Powered Maker Kits. Moving forward, the equipment will be available for use in libraries throughout the system in future programs.
