This workshop will teach you everything you need to know about digital printing on alternative surfaces. Starting with specialty paper and fabrics and beyond. During the 5 days with this subject you will be amazed at what is created.
Techniques such as overprinting, adding elements to a surface before printing, light weight metal mesh, beverage cans and handmade substrates will give students ways to start experimenting and printing alternative surfaces successfully during and after the workshop.
Photoshop or Photoshop Elements (in the current version at the time) will be used for any instruction on working with and printing digital images. There will be information and ideas for image manipulation, correcting color, resizing an image and the proper way to print successfully using printer profiles.
Before the close of this workshop you will experiment with assembling digital surfaces. This will be comparable to doing studies with the prints you created in the workshop. There is no end to the amazing ways you can work with digital prints. You will get ideas and learn ways to successfully use digital prints to add elements to you artwork. Consider the prints you will create during the workshop accordingly. If you have a specific idea you would like to test, bring the supplies for that. Kathyanne will bring a stash of items for students to play with. Kathyanne is always happy to speak with individual students before the workshop to help clarify this idea and assist each student to arrive fully prepared.
