Guidelines
Artist Lab Orientation

Prior to working in the Artist Lab, all new and existing users are now required to attend an hour-long Artist Lab orientation session on Zoom. These sessions cover the proper setup and operation of wide-format inkjet printers. Sessions run every two weeks on Fridays at 2 PM.

If you are not able to attend any of the available dates, please contact Keith directly.

There are currently no orientations scheduled. Please check back soon.

Artist Lab General Policies & Procedures

When working in the Artist Lab, you are expected to have a working knowledge of the equipment and software that you intend to use and you should have the confidence to work independently.

Staff may be available to answer short questions, troubleshoot general issues, or check settings, but are not available for individual questions. If you require that kind of help, it is recommended that you schedule an individual tutorial.

All printing is done through Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom. A basic foundation of either of these applications is necessary to work and print in the Artist Lab. If you lack this experience, it is recommended that you register for a class.
