In this intensive students will develop a tool kit of Risograph printing skills. The course is designed for students who have completed an online RisoLAB course, and is also open to anyone who previously completed an on campus RisoLAB course. The basics of operating the Risograph will be covered, including how to change drums, proper registration, manipulating printing speeds and technical settings to avoid printing mistakes. Through print demonstrations and hands-on exercises, students will gain a working knowledge of how to achieve the best result in translating their digital and analog designs into vivid and striking Risograph prints. Upon completion of this boot camp, students will have access to the RisoLAB facilities for a scheduled six- week period in order to print their Risograph projects.
PREREQUISITE: Students must have completed an online RisoLAB course or a course in Risograph printing at the RisoLAB.
NOTE: This course is held on campus at SVA.
