Have you always wanted to print at LATITUDE, but don’t know where to start?! Have no fear, Intro to Printing is here, back for the first time in 2021!

COVID19 has presented LATITUDE with interesting difficulties with our workshops. Many of our classes were hands-on and put multiple folks in the same room learning together. To keep workshop attendees and instructors safe, we have modified the format of the workshop to adhere to social distancing guidelines and other COVID-19 precautions.

This is a 3 part workshop consisting of instructional videos, a zoom session and an in person session at LATITUDE:

Part 1 (asynchronous): Watch instructional videos on vimeo.com at your own pace.

Part 2 (virtual): Meet on Zoom with LATITUDE’s Executive Director to receive a virtual tour of the lab and go over any questions from the instructional videos.

Monday, June 21st at 6:30pm CST OR Tuesday, June 22nd at 6pm CST

Part 3 (in person): Come into LATITUDE for one hour to apply all your knowledge and make your 2(8×10) prints.

Wednesday June 23rd from 6-7pm OR 7:30-8:30pm CST

Join us for this introductory course covering the basics of printing on Epson printers with a color managed workflow. You’ll walk away with the confidence to enter the lab and print on your own with minimal assistance, as well as two 8”x 10” prints of your own work! Completing all three parts of the workshop is mandatory to be certified to print at LATITUDE as a DIY user.

Intro to Printing covers:

  • Getting to know LATITUDE!

  • Paper selection, handling & loading

  • File prep, resolution, & management

  • Photoshop print settings & ICC profiles

  • Printer settings & basic troubleshooting

Space is limited to 8 participants total so grab your spot early! For the in person portion of the class, 2 time slots will be available to choose from, and each of those sessions will be capped at 4 attendees. Attending both the zoom and in person session is mandatory to be certified to print as a DIY user at LATITUDE.
