The semester is off to a great start in the Art
Studios! Students in Fibers 1 spent
their first week learning Monotype Printing on cotton fabric. First applying textile ink to a sheet of Plexiglas,
they then created layers of color and texture by pressing the ink directly onto
the surface of the fabric.
In the next couple of weeks, students will be learning how
to screen print and dye fabric and will design patterned yardages. Other techniques covered in Fibers 1 this
semester will include traditional and contemporary basketry techniques and
sewing three-dimensional forms. Stay
tuned for more updates from the Fibers Studio!
