Explore a variety of experimental processes combining the precision and control of digital imaging with the unpredictability and surprise of traditional printmaking. This course provides a thorough explanation of the software, hardware and skills necessary to integrate digital and traditional printmaking techniques. Methods covered will include transfer printing to non-printable surfaces, direct printing to pre-treated alternative substrates and the use of wet and dry media to create multi-layered hybrid prints. Through a series of software demos and hands-on labs students will develop artwork using a combination of materials and methods. Prerequisite: Basic computer knowledge required. Printmaking background recommended.
