Introduction to Printmaking
In our current times, many of us are making art in a home environment. As a printmaker, this can seem challenging. Rubbings, stencils, monotype, and relief, along with collage and chine collé are all methods that can easily be done without a press and using a variety of accessible materials. We will explore students’ different work spaces, and provide helpful hints (mis en place – just like cooking! – registration, supplies, etc.) throughout the semester to make creating your work a better experience. This course requires no previous printmaking experience and will include technical demonstrations, group critiques, and on-going individual consultation.
