Explore traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques for transferring images photographically to intaglio and screenprint. This course encourages exploration of and technical experimentation in using drawings, photographs and computer-generated visual information as components of a print. Furthermore, students master the darkroom and printmaking skills necessary to bring their ideas from conception to printed edition. As a result, each student completes a final portfolio of prints ranging from black-and-white etchings to four-color separation screenprints. The course is suitable for all—beginning, intermediate and advanced art and design students—and its structure allows repeating students and advanced-level printmakers to concentrate in a print area of their choice. Students exhibit their work at Open Studios held 4–6 pm on the final day of class.
