Tuesday, July 22nd and Thursday July24th, 6-9 pm
Learn multi-color paper-based (flatstock) art preparation and printing techniques, by turning a line drawing into a multi-color print at Ocelot Print Shop.
Students should bring:
laptop with Photoshop, if possible
paper/flatstock projects they are ready to print and/or need help with, if available (not required — demo artwork will also be available to work through and print in class)
We will take a line drawing and together go through steps for turning it into multi-color screen printable artwork using Photoshop. On the art prep side, techniques for separating artwork digitally and creating halftones and overlays will be demonstrated. On the print side, techniques for ink mixing and modification and methods for registration will be demonstrated. Demo artwork will be provided to work through and print, and students may also bring their own artwork to print and troubleshoot with the instructor. 10 sheets of paper will be provided per person. Students may bring additional stock if they wish. Students will leave the class with a packet of info outlining techniques taught in the class and a list of resources for materials and more information.
Prerequisites: SP 101 or recent experience with flatstock screen printing; working knowledge of Photoshop
