Assignment 2.5 - Prints from Assignment 2

Using the digital arts print lab, print three to five of your best works from Assignment two. I highly suggest, but will not enforce that prints should be at least 8X10 unless your work is ABOUT small prints.

Rather than having your prints due right after critique (Feb 6, day 8), you will take more of an active role in preparing your work for printing. After a lecture on profiling and printing (Feb 13, day 10), you will prepare your work for printing as if you will actually make the print. You will then shadow an MCaP worker to observe your print (or somebody else's) being made.

We will cover printing details in class.

For your reference, here is Jason's powerpoint:
