News from school:
"Hilsey has asked me to ask you if it would be possible
to make T-Shirts. She wants the kids to come into
summer school on July 6th and make designs--then the
best one could be chosen and then that design could be
placed on T-Shirts to be sold at a Pow-Wow in Seattle
on July 22nd."
I always like doing things like this. So I'm all for it. But they will need to do transfers for it, not silkscreen. I've made lots of T shirt-and-other-things designs for both silkscreen and transfers. I used to have the older children (when I taught art to the whole school) design a T shirt, then do everything from making the screen with a photo technique, to printing them. I had two children get up to color registration, which is hard-ish. I had children who were my designated "master printers," and I would have them instruct younger classes, or print, say 50 T shirts for volleyball. It was really great. I also had them print their designs on good paper, and we framed them. One class drew native foods and I combined the drawings into one drawing of baskets with corn, beans, fish, etc., which they silkscreened onto red material and sewed into potholders. The fabric markers work very well - we'd add a bit of color if it was appropriate. That was just one tiny part of what we did. I miss that. We did amazing things.
