Digital Printing Alternative Surfaces-Mixed Media
August 18-21, 2014 9AM to 4PM
Hardesty Art Center, Tulsa Oklahoma
Covering the basics of digital printing alternative surfaces—we will prepare, construct and print an assortment of alternative surfaces. Next we will learn ways to push the digital print further. Alternative surface printing is an amazing way to add images, color and other ideas to mixed media artwork.
Techniques such as overprinting, adding elements to a surface before printing, printing light weight metals, handmade substrates and more will give students ways to get used to printing on unique substrates.The learning outcomes from techniques presented will allow students to print alternative surfaces successfully on their own after the workshop is concluded.
My photo software programs of choice will be Photoshop in the current version. There will be information and ideas for image manipulation—setting up an overprint and color correction. In addition students will learn the print process with information geared to quality printing.
I am looking forward to an incredible week for students to learn about expanding the digital print. Techniques will be discussed covering innovative ways to use your printed alternative surfaces in your mixed media artwork.
Students will have hands on experience with using the printers for the workshops along with some tips for success. Get up to speed with what you need to know to successfully print alternative surfaces.
