Blog screen printing

A little project…

January 10, 2013

I have a little girl who loooooves to make stuff. Actually – most of my children love to make things.

This one is a little different from the others in that everything she wants to make seems to requires my full participation. (sigh. If I were a better mother this would not be a problem.) She begged all through Christmas break to do some screen printing and it took until the very last evening of break for me to finally get around to helping her out.

Of course it took about that long to unpile the studio, which had become the repository for piles of wrapping paper and shipped boxes. That was of course, on top of the piles of shipping boxes and stuff from teaching all year mess. She says she also love snakes. She drew one and I messed around with it in Photoshop Elements until we had three screens with various sized snakes. And then we made a few thermofax screens.

Now we have another project underway that she can ask about – repeatedly. “Mom, when are we going to work on my tote bag?” And I can say “When everyone’s homework is finished and I’m back from taking your brothers to hockey and dinner is made.” It might be a while. One thing I love about this girl is that she is persistent. It takes dedication and determination to become an artist, right?!
