In this class, we will explore the perks and limitations of printing with riso. We'll cover everything from choosing the right paper for your project, to processing digital designs for print, the specifics of fine-tuning settings on the machine, and tips for working within the bounds of this medium to produce beautiful multicolor art prints, zines, posters etc. Each student will have the opportunity to develop their own design from scratch or make use of an existing graphic with the ultimate goal of choosing a color palette and printing an edition of 25 art prints by the end of the workshop. The instructor will outline how to separate designs into individual color layers using Photoshop if needed, as well as physical techniques for creating color layers with the use of tracing paper. Other experimental techniques will be discussed, including playful uses of the scanner bed, incorporating interesting texture layers into designs, and messing with non-traditional compositions in color.
