Description:
The goal of this course is to give students an immersive technical foundation in three printmaking mediums: Screenprint, Etching, and Lithography. Working with three faculty in 5-week sessions over the course of 15 weeks, students will develop skills for executing a print in each medium, with a focus on technique, materials, and planning ideas for prints. This course offers students problem-solving skills, and insight into planning and integrating content and concepts into assignments working on a short timeframe. Students will conclude the semester with an understanding of the methodology involved in making prints, an introduction to histories of printmaking and contemporary print, and the realm of possibilities that can be discovered through the culture of printmaking, both on a large commercial scale, and a small self-published scale.
