WANT TO TEST YOUR PRACTICAL ART SKILLS for FREE?
Are you a graphic artist (or graphics art student) and would like to try some artwork projects that are common in screen printing, t-shirt shops and sign shops? Check out ASPA's Computer Graphic Artists Project. It was created to give graphic artists some practice producing the type of artwork you will have to create in a 'real world' print shop.
Why should you do our art exercises? Knowing how to create artwork used in a typical print shop can give you an advantage for job opportunities in commercial graphics.
As a screen printer, t-shirt printer or sign maker, the time will come when you will have to 'get creative' and draw some original art. As an example, your customer may want a unique custom drawn element in the t-shirt design or the sign you are making for them.
While you can 'farm this out' to a third party to do the artwork for you, it would be useful (and fun) to be able to create the art piece yourself.
Below are some drawing tools and tips for beginners that would be useful for any screen printer who is not an artist.
