Students will create a body of print editions using a variety of technical processes including drypoint, soft-ground, aquatint, and photo-etching. Assignments will be exploratory in nature with some unpredicatbility of results; students will gain a strong understanding of the medium. In addition to the print work, students will be responsible for completing readings, concept drawings and lab notes. Students will present and participate in regular group critique to expand their critical observational skills and vocabulary.
