Digital Printing On Alternative Surfaces Workshop

Join instructor KathyAnne White  Monday, August 18 through Thursday, August 21, at the 4D Studio at AHHA for an exciting workshop on digital printing on alternative surfaces. 

Classes will be held 9:30 AM- 4:30 PM 

Workshop Description: 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. 

From the Instructor: 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.
