We are aware of missing faculty photos in the directory and catalog and will be updating them shortly. Thank you for your patience.


Summer 2018 quarter (Second Session)

Taught by


In this summer intensive program, students will learn the process of traditional Japanese printmaking known as Mokuhanga. This is an introductory course that will explore printmaking techniques that date back to the Edo period (1603-1868). Applying contemporary subject matter with non-toxic methods, students will incorporate a focus on nature will support investigation through a western lens. Primarily studio-based, students will gain an understanding of historical aspects through slideshow lectures that involve historic and contemporary examples. In addition to making art, students will create a technical journal documenting their discoveries. Throughout the session, students will present and participate in a group critique to investigate and support their accomplishments.
