Printmaking: From Light to Ink

Explore traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques for transferring images photographically to intaglio, lithograph 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.
