Contemporary Letterpress Class @ CA College of the Arts Ext Ed

Instructor: Thea Sizemore
Sat. & Sun., 9 a.m.5 p.m., March 14, 15, 21 & 22
4 sessions. $320. Noncredit. Prerequisite: none

Contemporary uses of traditional printing processes can provide a unique tactile quality to the work of designers, book artists, and printmakers. In this two-weekend workshop, participants learn how to combine traditional letterpress and photopolymer-plate-printing techniques to express their ideas. Polymer plates enable students to incorporate personally selected images (either line art or black-and-white photos) and/or computer-generated images with text blocks. The class tackles complex type lockups and polymer-plate creation. (Note: photo images are printed in halftone, rather than continuous tone.)

Bring to first class: project ideas, camera-ready artwork, and text. Students are responsible for image scanning, film production, photopolymer plates, and paper expenses.
