Silk Screen Printing

Silk Screen Printing

Art Teacher Mr. Howard Kanter recently taught students how to print an image on fabric using a silk screening technique.

The Structured Teaching Education Program (STEP) students, who run the AMS Coffee Cart, participated in the activity. 

Mr. Kanter designed the AMS Coffee Cart logo himself. 

The first step in the silk screening process was to tape the apron down to the table, making sure to get out all of the wrinkles out.

Next the students added blue paint to the silk screen master template.

The students added the paint to the top of the template and then used a tool to evenly distribute the paint throughout the template. 

Mr. Kanter taught the students that you need to press firmly while doing this so enough ink transfers through to the apron.

Each student had fun learning this new technique.

They all had a very cool apron at the end of the lesson, which they look forward to wearing the next time they are working with the AMS Coffee Cart.
