Introduction to digital photo manipulation for paper and lithograph applications. One day only TBA with Alice Dubiel. We will focus on digital image preparation for simple printmaking media including polyester plate, paper plates, or print background on your digital printer. Learn about printers, software introduction, some technical concerns and basic graphics decisions (or, what makes a good image?). $65. If you aren't familar with creating either one color or color separations in Photoshop or Illustrator (I don't use it for this, but it works fine and many artists do), you may want to spend some pre-workshop time with me before taking the digital and mixed media printmaking workshop to get up to speed.
