April 11, 2012 – Commercial and graphic art classes are common in schools, but not many districts provide students with a practical application of those skills. A screen printing program does that in a way that excites students. Hearlihy offers affordable, quality equipment that helps educators create a successful screen printing program – whether students make a handful of graphic tees or a large quantity of posters. Schools can start with the Apprentice Screen Printing Package and work up to the Premier Screen Printing Package.
- Screen printing programs provide a natural extension and practical application of graphic arts programs in high schools.
- Hearlihy simplifies the process of creating a screen printing lab with a full line of curriculum and equipment.
“Screen printing gets kids in here because it’s fun. Learning digital press and variable data are good skills, but that won’t get kids in the door. Screen printing will,” said Jim Lynch, graphic communications instructor at Eudora-DeSoto (Kansas) Technical Education Center.
