Exploring Printmaking

Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing, normally on paper. Exploring printmaking will cover some of the simplest processes to create prints with an element of originality using simple contemporary techniques. Students will produce multiples of the same work, which is called a “print.” Each print produced is not a copy but considered an original since it is not a reproduction of another work of art and is technically (more correctly) known as an impression. Printmaking is not chosen only for its ability to produce multiple copies, but rather for the unique qualities that each of the printmaking processes lends itself to. Contemporary print techniques in this course will employ stenciling, stamping, as well as other simple processes.

Wednesday | 1- 3 p.m. | Room 303
