Printmaking Gallery



** Advanced study is available within this course, limited to the availability of space after first-year students have been accommodated. Advanced students must meet the prerequisite of a "B+" or higher grade in the first-year course and have approval of the teacher.

This course offers the student the opportunity to explore a variety of printmaking techniques. Printmaking deals with the reproduction of an original artwork through processes such as wood and linoleum cuts, silk-screen, monoprints and collographs. Work is directed toward printing as an independent creative form with strong emphasis on the expressive visual qualities particular to each technique. Students will participate in group critiques and self-assessment, write research papers, engage in reflective writing, and read associated articles. Students are expected to work beyond class time to complete assignments and should expect one to two hours of homework per week. Students will be assessed through a final written exam and a portfolio review.
