This course introduces students to the methods, materials, history, and theories involved in printmaking.

We will be discussing the 4 basic types of printmaking processes: Lithography, Serigraphy, Intaglio, and Relief. We will be making prints using the relief and serigraph methods. This course focuses on the forms of print that can be done in the home, without the use of printmaking machinery or facilities. Students will create 2 to 3 compositions using serigraphy and relief printing and engage in a group critique to gain insight on how their work is being understood by others.

Ages 18 and up
