ART 7026 - Printmaking


3 credits
This studio art course explores printmaking as a contemporary art form. A range of printmaking techniques are introduced, including chine colle’, monotype, non-acid intaglio, and relief printing, as well as several experimental techniques using common materials. The emphasis will be on using printmaking media to create original artworks, taking advantage of the qualities that can be achieved through various forms of printmaking. Students will learn to create print editions-sets of matching, multiple prints-and also will experiment with unique print techniques such as monoprint and monotype. The course will explore the history and theory behind the different techniques, with a particular focus on how contemporary approaches can stimulate original artistic ideas.
