Understand the potential of digital printing in ANU’s state of the art Inkjet Research Facility. Learn techniques and generate ideas in digital file preparation and inkjet printer control directly applicable in the classroom. Make high quality prints of your own creative art works. Working in the Australian National University’s Inkjet Research Facility, and using their own photography and visual art as examples, participants will learn current methods for digital file preparation and workflow management to ensure the greatest print control. They will acquire skills in digital file preparation and management, as well as inkjet printer control, substrate choice and colour profiling. These skills will be directly applicable back in the classroom as well as being the basis for further personal creative exploration, such as in the ‘Innovatively exploring digital printing in the visual arts’ program. Each participant will produce a fine-art quality print.
