Digital Printing Alternative Surfaces Unleashed
Greenville Arms – Greenville, NY
Instructor: Kathyanne White
April 27 – May 3, 2014
Medium: Mixed Media
Level: All Levels
5-Day Studio Class
It's time to get truly creative with digital printing. Here is a workshop to discover new ideas and find ways to combine digital printing with your art. This workshop is designed to be innovative, unique and experiential. If you want to bring your art to a different level this is the place for you. Whether you want to create totally new work or bring your present work to a new level it is up to you.
There is no end to the types of surfaces or artwork you are inspired to create when using digital images in your work. This workshop is designed for you to get creative in new and unusual ways. Better yet it takes an amazing concept—digital printing alternative surfaces on levels and layers to create art work. We will be assembling your printing process into your artwork. All the printing surfaces, inks, precoats and other related supplies will be provided in the student supply fee. There will also be a stash of items and tools for students to use.
This is an entirely new workshop designed to take your digital images along with your art to an entirely new level. Join us for 5 days to get creative and move your artwork to a new level using the digital medium.
$65 materials fee
Everything for the print process including surfaces, ink, base to build surfaces on, tapes, scissors, cutting board, rotary cutter, teflon sheets for pressing foam brushes for precoats, precoats, carrier sheets, temporary spray adhesive and anything else we may need to print.

Unleash the potential of your digital output by learning to prepare and print your work on custom substrates.
July 13th - July 19th, 2014
This is a workshop about possibilities. My mentor, Jean Pierre Sudre, speaking about the making of work, is quoted, “maintenant, on a ces possibilités” (now we have these possibilities). He was always looking for a way to introduce the element of matter and dimension into the photographic print in subtle but effective treatments.
During the week participants examine the possibilities to create custom printable substrates. This might involve coating a rag fine art paper with Ink Aid or Golden Digital Grounds. We use techniques that allow us to print on metal surfaces. Students create digital skins that can be attached to a variety of surfaces. We print onto film and transfer the images to stone paper, metal and plexiglass to name a few. The result of the week’s work is an expanded idea of what the digital print can be and an almost limitless range of possibilities of what individual imagery can become.
A portfolio review is required for admission to this course. You can submit a portfolio via a link to your website, online portfolio, or print submission. For more detailed information on these requirements, click here.
