ART273 :  Printmaking III

This is the third term in a three-course sequence in printmaking. Students may continue to explore the rich visual potential in woodcut, working to perfect the Ukiyo-e carving technique of a thin raised black line. Students may continue to express their ideas using silkscreen methods and to explore additional methods in intaglio. Students are introduced to stone lithography in this third level. The emphasis in Printmaking III is to begin a personal exploration of imagery and to choose an area of interest within the scope of printmaking methods to complete their projects. Students build on their imagination, inventiveness and visual fluency. In addition, students explore the history of the print as an art form on a subject complimentary to their chosen area of printmaking. Students blog regularly regarding class critiques using print and art terminology, processes and analysis of visual translation. Sequential.
