ART272 :  Printmaking II: Silkscreen, Woodcut, and Intaglio

This is the second in a three-course sequence in printmaking. Students explore graphic communication in black and white relief, practice traditional Japanese carving and printing techniques, such as the sabitsuke cut, develop imagery in multiple blocks and continue silkscreen practices. Students will be introduced to the intaglio methods of dry point and etching in this second level. As in Printmaking I, students will use both the direct and indirect method of imagery development. Students will study the graphic appeal of the black and white print with an emphasis on German expressionism and Mexican revolutionary prints. Students blog regularly regarding class critiques using print and art terminology, processes and analysis of visual translation. Sequential.
