ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
This workshop will explain options for color separation using Photoshop. Please bring a laptop with a version of Photoshop, and a few images that you would like to work with. We will explore options for separating color using photoshop, and translating the separations into halftone for exposing onto silkscreens. I strongly suggest imagery that is not too complicated, a close up is better to work with as opposed to a landscape with a lot of small detail. Keep it simple and easy for your first try. Color separations can be as simple as two color, or as complicated as you like, depending on the time you have to expose screens and print all the colors (each color will need a new image exposed to a screen). Requirements for this workshop; laptop, images to work with, and a knowledge of basic Photoshop as well as some understanding of screen printing (or have taken the Beginning Silkscreen workshop).
