Digital Goes Analog: Photoshop Methods for Screenprinting (Fall 2014)

Fine Arts

As computer programs like Adobe Photoshop continue to evolve, the ways to create positives for printmaking become almost limitless. This hands-on class will start in the computer lab, where students will learn techniques for image creation, set up print-ready files, and make positives for their prints.

The last three weeks will be in the printmaking studio, where students will turn their digitally-created positives into screenprints. Depending on the complexity of the projects, students will have the opportunity to spend time outside of class in the printmaking studio.

Students will leave the class with at least one multi-layer screenprint and ideas for more. / Each student will have access throughout the class to a lab workstation equipped with the latest software. / Facilities fee of $35 and materials fee of $10 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 18 and above.

Prerequisites: Working knowledge of Photoshop and Mac OS X.

What to Bring: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook, USB drive, blank CD, or cloud storage option for saving work. / A complete list of suggested materials will be discussed during the first class meeting.

Please Register Before: October 8
