In this course, stu­dents explore color in relief print­mak­ing and cre­ate unique prints and mul­ti­ples uti­liz­ing both dig­i­tal and ana­log input. Class demon­stra­tions intro­duce mak­ing and print­ing images in color from a vari­ety of relief sur­faces and cover a range of sin­gle and multi-plate meth­ods. Through indi­vid­ual and group projects, stu­dents engage print con­cepts such as mul­ti­plic­ity, seri­al­iza­tion, and sequence. Lec­tures, vis­it­ing artists-speak­ers, projects, and engage­ments stress a strong his­tor­i­cal and the­o­ret­i­cal under­stand­ing of the print media while inves­ti­gat­ing the mean­ing­ful rela­tion­ships between the tech­nolo­gies of repro­duc­tion, indi­vid­ual expres­sion, and the rela­tion­ship of con­tem­po­rary print prac­tices to the broader visual cul­ture. Work stu­dio pro­ce­dures, proper and safe use of print equip­ment, mate­ri­als and tools are instructed through­out the semes­ter. Essen­tial aspects of curat­ing, exhibit­ing, and pre­serv­ing art­works on paper are cov­ered as well. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is offered occa­sion­ally in either the fall or win­ter term.
