Mrs. Vaught’s First Period Screen Printing Project
January 8, 2019
Screen printing originated in China around AD 221 as a way to transfer designs onto fabric. Today, screen printing is used as a quick way to customize tee shirts and create printed works of art. Mrs. Shelia Vaught recently wrote a grant in order to obtain the materials needed to screen print tee shirts. Vaught saw screen printing as an opportunity for her students to experience another technique of creating unique artwork. In addition to exposing students to another method of creating, Vaught saw a great opportunity for her students to use screen printing in the future.
“I wrote that grant so that students who do not plan on going to college would have an opportunity to learn a trade that would be lucrative to them,” said Vaught. “They could use screen printing as a means of making income and providing for a family.”
