Printmakers use a variety of exciting processes and techniques to create multiple versions of their work. In this course, students will explore printmedia methods in order to produce a portfolio of unique 2D artworks. Through relief carving, screenprinitng, and monotype, students will incorporate hand-drawn elements to create hand-pulled prints. This course will also explore new printmaking techniques, such as the use of laser-cut matrices and inkjet transfers, to further investigate "the multiple" through mechanical reproduction. This course will push the boundaries of traditional mark-making and produce artworks where painting, drawing, and print overlap. Trips to the Art Institute of Chicago, a field trip to a local printmaking studio, and discussion of practicing artists, supplement the studio experience. This course is recommended for both beginners and those wanting to improve and develop their current skills and ideas.
