Introduction to Digital Print Design for Riso
Jul 8 - Aug 12
Panayiotis Terzis, RisoLAB manager, School of Visual Arts; owner, Mega Press
Through online lectures and slide presentations, students will receive technical training in print design for the Risograph process. Feedback and guidance will be given in group and individual critiques. An overview of Risograph printing and its range of printing techniques, as well as examples of Risograph and printmaking-based work will be included. Each student will generate a portfolio of various Risograph projects in the form of print editions, zines, cards, promotional fliers, and other printed matter that will be formatted for printing at a future date. After completing this course, students will be eligible to register for a special three-day on-site print training boot camp scheduled to run, conditions permitting, in the fall 2020 semester at the SVA RisoLAB. The boot camp will be offered for a separate fee, and will allow students to use the facilities for the remainder of the semester to print their projects.
Note: This course is fully online and offered through a combination of synchronous as well as asynchronous lectures and discussions. Students are invited to attend regularly scheduled online sessions during the listed course hours.
