Printmaking: Intaglio Impressions with Figure Drawing
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
In this introductory course, students will gain hands-on experience and technical skills in drawing and printmaking. Weekly sessions will provide instruction of drawing the human figure in an observational setting with a live nude model. Combining the traditional intaglio printmaking process with formal and experimental figurative drawing, this class will work directly with the printmaking plate in the drawing studio. Students will then create a body of print editions in the printmaking studio by using a variety of technical processes including hard-ground, soft-ground, and aquatint techniques. Students will present and participate in regular group critique to expand their critical observational skills and vocabulary.
This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
