Risograph: Focus on Photography and Graphics

Thursday
6:30PM - 9:30PM
Sep 21 - Dec 14
3.50 CEUs

Paul John Director, Endless Editions; printer, Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop

Imagine the interface of a photocopier with the image quality of a highly detailed screen printer, printing at incredible speed-this is the Risograph duplicator. The speed and capacity enables student experimentation in real time. Best practices will be outlined for print production, including both practical and creative color use, concentrating on photographs and graphic images. Students will experiment with Riso CMYK, CMY, and Hexachrome processes to reproduce photographic images, and will also be able to create multicolored graphics comparing raster images and vector images. Assignments will be based on personal practice, and will include creating color charts, exploring multiple registration techniques, producing photo books, and other seasonal projects. Examples from presses around the world will be reviewed and field trips will be organized. No prior Risograph experience is necessary.
NOTE: This course includes access to the RisoLAB only; access to the 5th floor printmaking facilities is not included. It is recommended that students have intermediate experience with Adobe Suite.
