Vidabeth Bensen teaches art and screen printing at various locations in the Triangle area of North Carolina. She was an artist-in-residence for the Durham, NC schools for eight years. She specializes in familiarizing art teachers and classroom teachers with the simple methods of screen printing that she has devised over the years.
Vidabeth has conducted workshops at the National Art Education Association Convention, the North Carolina Art Teachers Association and returns every summer to the University of Connecticut where she teaches in a graduate program for teachers from all over the world. In recent years she has traveled to Okinawa, Japan, Germany, Italy, and Turkey to teach screen printing to students and teachers in American Schools on military bases overseas.
Screen printing is a simple, enjoyable, and cost effective method of creating multiples of original artwork. Artists and teachers will benefit personally and professionally by following the explicit and easily understandable steps in A Simple Guide to Screen Printing.
