In this online 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 contribute to weekly discussion posts in Canvas. 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.
This course will be conducted as hybrid participation meaning that most time will be spent in-person on campus in the printmaking studio, and some work time using Canvas, Zoom, and online model reference sites. A computer and access to the internet are required. If you do not have a computer one may be checked out to you from the campus library. All assignments must be submitted for review at the end of the session attended. Regularly scheduled synchronous (together) in-person meetings will take place once a week for a three-hour session. Students will be expected to take notes and work asynchronously (independent) for an average of 6-8 hours each week.
