Printmaking is a great way to learn about the history and language of original prints as a unique art form and as a basis for further artistic exploration in all forms of the graphic arts.
Introduction to Printmaking ARTS 1030
Intro to Printmaking is a survey of basic printmaking techniques and materials to create original prints. For centuries artists working in many different media and styles have worked in printmaking as a means to discover new ways to visualize their work.
This course provides the opportunity for students to explore a range of printmaking processes including Relief, Monotype, Intaglio using dry point and mezzotint, and Polymer Plate Lithography. Students will also have a chance to try new materials such as photo-sensitive etching plates that approximate the same effects created in etching and aquatint.
