In this 10 week letterpress course, students will focus on slogan writing and transforming outrage into a dynamic, concise, legible protest object. Skills demonstrated in this course will include language development, visual communication, color theory, text hierarchy, type setting, two color print registration, ink manipulation (blend rolls, splatter effects, flocking) and paper consideration. Students will leave this course with the knowledge and understanding to safely operate our machines.
Throughout the class students will develop the technical skills needed to continue print independently at Spudnik Press and a variety of historical and contemporary approaches to the artform.
This class will not meet on November 27th.
