Printmaking may be taken for a second semester to build on their knowledge of relief and intaglio print processes. Students will expand their technical skills by utilizing new image making and printing processes and by executing and editioning more complex prints. Students will develop a conceptually cohesive portfolio of prints. In addition, students will learn about the history of printmaking process and noted printmaking artists to understand the context of the development of printmaking, the evolution of the printmaking technique of interest and its role in modern art.
