Adobe software skills highly recommended.
This exciting workshop explores the photo lithography process combined with image-making techniques using equipment in the Digital Fabrication Lab (“FabLab”) at Anderson Ranch Arts Center. Analog and digital applications of photolithography are presented. Devices such as laser cutters, digital plotters and inkjet printers are used for image development. Experimentation and a variety of approaches are encouraged. Students discover new and inventive ways of making images for the lithography process not easily achieved by hand. Those who are more digitally-focused have the opportunity to explore a more traditional and tactile printmaking process.
Media & Techniques:
Students learn photo lithography print processes as well as image-making techniques using a variety of fabrication machines. Laptops with Adobe software along with drives to transfer data in the FabLab are highly recommended (but not required). Computer access is available.
Each day consists of various demonstrations and time for individual exploration in both the printmaking studio and FabLab. Students receive individual instruction along with group discussions, and technical support throughout the week.
