Student-Originated Studies: Printmaking
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
This SOS is a semi-structured opportunity for intermediate and advanced students interested in artistic inquiry, printmaking and drawing to develop prints and drawings in an artistic community. There will be no formal printmaking instruction . Students are expected to enroll with existing college-level instruction and proficiency in the printmaking form they will pursue: etching, drypoint, monotype, lino-cut or woodcut. Group and individual critiques, collaborative learning, and concise writing assignments will ground students' independent research and studio practice. A major learning objective will include organizing and presenting one's original artistic research and work through a formal lecture presentation to the group. Students interested in printmaking linked to illustration, graphic design, graphic arts, graphic novels or related forms are welcomed to apply, as are sculptors, woodworkers, and metal artists interested in pursuing their ideas in two dimensions. This offering may serve as an intermediate-level opportunity to explore focused two-dimensional artistic inquiry for a quarter or two, or an advanced capstone opportunity for those preparing to graduate with a mature portfolio of work.
This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
art history and visual arts.
