Printmaking: Introduction to Serigraphy
Spring 2018 quarter
In this introductory course, students will gain hands-on experience and technical skills by creating a body of print editions. Students will be exposed to the history of serigraphy (screen-printing) as well as current contemporary art applications through presentations, lectures, and discussion. Assignments will focus on technical aspects of the process. In addition to the print work, the student will be responsible for completing readings, a midterm paper, concept drawings and lab notes. Students will present and participate in a group critique to expand their critical observational skills.
