In this introductory to intermediate level course, students will gain hands-on experience and technical skills by creating several editions of print-work. Assignments will focus on technical aspects of the process, learning a variety of techniques including paper stencil, drawing fluid with screen filler, paint-marker on acetate, and photo-emulsion. In addition to the print-work, students will complete concept drawings, and weekly blog posts of their at-home practice. Students will learn about the history of serigraphy (screen-printing), current contemporary industry, and a variety of professional artists and approaches to the medium. Students will present and participate in regular group review and critiques that will expand their critical observational skills and visual literacy.
All work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. A computer and access to the internet are preferred but not required, a phone may be used to connect during class sessions, all assignments must be submitted for review at the end of the session attended. Regularly scheduled synchronously (together) virtual meetings will take place once a week for a three-hour session. Through step-by-step demonstrations and video tutorials, students will be expected to take notes and work asynchronously (independent) for an average of eight hours during each week. Students will be required to contribute to a class blog in Canvas. Students will be required to purchase a basic supply kit that will be theirs to keep. This will be available through the printmaking studio. The cost is estimated around $100.00
