ARTS 229 - Printmaking: Monoprint and Relief (2,2) 3 Credits
Prerequisite(s): ARTS 105 - Two-Dimensional Design or ARTS 110 - Basic Drawing I or permission of the instructor.
This course will explore one of the oldest techniques in printmaking: the relief print, in which the surface of a wood block or linoleum is cut away and the surface inked to form the image. A much more modern method of surface printing will also be explored: the monoprint, is a very direct, painterly method of making prints that results in a unique image. This studio experience is supplemented with slide lectures, reading assignments, and videotapes to put the process/prints in a formal design context and an art historical perspective. Students must purchase some art supplies. Offered in the fall semester.
