The Liberated Print:Investigation of Alt Methods

Course No. PRI477.1  Credits: 3.0

This course creates a context for students to negotiate the challenging and complex issues embedded in the making of contemporary printed images. Projects and techniques complement and extend methods of traditional processes, allowing students room to invent, arrange, analyze and create connections through more immediate printmaking methods to their major fields of study. This class will concentrate on the intuitive, spontaneous and fluid approaches in printmaking such as; monoprint, collagraph, transfer drawing, Xerox litho, and wood intaglio, instigating the dialog between the limited edition vs. singular print, and the original vs. a copy. We will consider formats that bridge other disciplines working with color, installation and three-dimensional/sculptural constructions with considerations to work on paper. The course will offer experiences that provide the tools to understand print media within a contemporary framework. Note: Open elective. Encouraged for third and fourth year students with a painting and drawing emphasis as an Elective Studio. Required for Third Year Print Majors. 3 credits.
