Intro Printmaking: Image Construction I: Line + Sequence

Course No. PRI 200  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Maggie Denk-Leigh

Printmaking grows out of an experimental approach to image construction closely aligned to both the kinetic practice of drawing and the mechanical possibilities inherent in the crafting of a matrix for reproduction. Students participating in this course will interrogate what defines a "print," using line and sequence as the visual language allowing introspection and clarification of ideological concepts. Course exploration includes intaglio and relief processes, an introduction to the history of the field, printing of a matrix supporting discoveries of the limited edition and narrative aspects of multiple impressions. The body of work students produce in this course will be informed by the history of printmaking, the critical dialogue surrounding contemporary art and print media in particular, and should reveal students' development of skill and sensitivity to the printed impression quality visually articulating the individual's aesthetic voice. Note: Open to all students as an introductory level course. Encouraged for Second and Third year students with a drawing emphasis as an Elective Studio. Required for Second Year Print Majors. Offered fall.
