Printmaking II: Relief Printmaking
ARST 338
Spring 2019
Section: 01  

This printmaking course focuses on the relief print. Through an exploration of techniques (subtractive and additive) and materials (e.g., cardboard, wood, linoleum, plastic) students will gain experience in different strategies for making a print. While instruction will be given in many processes available to the printmaker--cutting, inking, paper handling, and printing--students are expected to adapt these methods to their own particular vision. Students learn to develop a print through a series of proofs with critical feedback as important input in the progression from idea sketch to final edition. Extensive use is made of the Davison Art Center print collection. Printmaking I is not a prerequisite for this course.
