In this introductory printmaking course students will gain hands-on experience by learning basic relief, intaglio, and screen printing processes.
They will learn how to design work for each printmaking process introduced in this course. Relief involves carving away negative space from a surface. Intaglio involves drawing into a copperplate and etching the design with acid. Screen printing involves creating a stencil to make multiple images in quick succession. Students will present and participate in regular design review and a final group critique that will expand their critical observational skills and visual literacy.
Studio lab will be available to work outside of class sessions during the week, assignment work may require and additional 6-8 hours.
