Description


MASTERING THE FINE ART DIGITAL PRINT
Chris Grunder

12 sessions >> Wednesdays, January 31–April 25
(no session March 14 due to Spring Break)
7–10 pm, Studio 20A, $530
No prerequisite for this course, but a working understanding of Mac OS X is necessary.

The photographic print is no less important in the digital age than it was when silver gelatin ruled the darkroom. Despite greater automation, the process can seem just as daunting. This 10-week course will demystify that process as students develop the skills needed to produce fine art quality prints. We will explore advanced software tools including Adobe Bridge, Adobe Camera Raw, Adobe Photoshop, and Xrite 1 with the intent of simplifying color management and workflow on the way to creating the “perfect print.” Class time will be split between directed tutorials and hands-on printing with top of the line Epson pigment printers. Students will be required to supply their own paper but will be walked through the multistep process of deciding which papers best suit their images.

What materials (if any) will I need to bring to class?
Each course requires specific materials that we ask you bring to your first class session so you can get started making right away. Materials lists are available approximately two weeks prior to the course start date. Visit the SFAI website here, click on your course title, and then click on the blue "Materials List" link underneath the course dates. If you have any questions regarding materials, please contact Public Education Staff.

What are my transport/parking options getting to San Francisco Art Institute?
All classes meet at 800 Chestnut Street (unless otherwise noted), between Jones and Leavenworth. You can find directions to campus on the SFAI website.

SFAI is located in a residential neighborhood, and free two-hour parking is available on all of the streets immediately surrounding the school. The two-hour restriction cuts off at 9pm, so evening Public Education students do not need to move their car, unless you arrive prior to 7pm.

SFAI is easily accessible via public transportation, with Muni bus lines #30 Stockton, and #47 Van Ness located within a few blocks of campus.

I have a question that isn't on this list. Who can I contact?
