Intro Printmaking: Image Construction II: Color + Form

Course No. PRI 201  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Barbara Chira

Drawing connects art and design; it is the oldest of all arts. This course will provide students a thorough introduction to the printmaking processes of lithography, silkscreen, and monoprint techniques. Students will be required to investigate color and form to generate multiple and unique impressions. Layering, color relationships, and principles of design serves as a starting point for image construction leading students to discoveries of complex solutions. While addressing conceptual and technical challenges related to printmaking, students will develop a body of work relative to the covered topics. Matrices will be built through drawing, painting, stencil making and toner transfers. These various methods will be investigated as both singular process prints as well as elements in multi-layered works. Required for all sophomore Print majors; open elective for all students above the freshman level. Offered spring.
