Adobe Tutorials

Terry White is a really good resource for Adobe learning, he has so many videos, many of which I really appreciate are overviews of each program, every time there's a new release or update. Here are some of his overviews for beginners:

Adobe actually has some really good tutorials and resources. They also put on a conference every year called MAX where experts around the world teach workshops for their programs, highly recommend perusing. Here are some of their playlists that have quick tutorials:
Screen Printing Tutorials

This class was the most helpful for me knowing nothing. I learned a ton about the nuances and all the variables.
A nice intro to the medium, though it glosses over a lot of issues that I ran into...but love her work and she's got some great DIY hacks and setups.
Love watching their videos! I learned how to pull and register (line up) my prints from just watching.
I also buy emulsion and any chemicals from Ryonet. They have eco-friendly stuff, since I'm working in my home and yard, I don't want to contaminate or harm myself in this process.
You can also find a lot of equipment (from Asia) and inks on amazon...but if you have a Blicks near you that's a great option as well. I purchased my screens second hand from students that had graduated and didn't need them anymore! (Craigslist also sometimes has some stuff too!)
