These can be photos, drawings, or paper cutouts. Images should be black and white or greyscale. Paper cutouts can be on any color, but must be at least as thick as cardstock (not see through when you hold it up to the light) Please e-mail images to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the class. We will go over how to prep your images for silkscreening. Computer literacy is not required! Wear clothes that can get inky ;D Group discounts and special appointments available!
