Intro to Risograph Printing (ONLINE)

This 4 week, online class will provide participants an overview of the Risograph printing medium and process, including a background on the medium and how it came to be a popular print method of choice with presentations of work within the field. Participants will get an introduction on how the Risograph works and the multiple approaches to creating artwork that utilizes the specific quirks of the machine. Participants will design their own original print and participate in the creation of a shared portfolio printed by the instructor. Due to the highly automated nature of Risograph, this medium is well suited for distant/virtual workshops since the bulk of the work goes into the design set up.

Please note that participants will need access to a scanner or be able to take a high resolution photo. Final prints and portfolios will be mailed out to participants at the end of the class.

Kala will be using Zoom, an online video conferencing service to bring participants our interactive creative lessons. Kala will follow recommended security measures, and set virtual classroom expectations so we can maintain a safe and fun learning experience for all participants online.
