Courses

art 361
survey printmaking
Introduction to the four areas of printmaking – relief, intaglio, lithography, and silkscreen. Projects in each of these areas will develop technical skills and understanding of the physical nature of creating original prints. Issues of subject matter, content, and intent will be discussed and explored.
Creative and original solutions to visual problems will be emphasized. Offered in fall, spring.  Prereq:  ART 133 and 142.

art 363
lithography printmaking I
Explores multiple approaches to creating lithographic prints. Starts at an introductory level technically and builds with each new process into an intermediate understanding and working knowledge of the process. Covers stone lithography, aluminum plate lithography, and waterless lithography. 
Offered periodically. Prereq:  ART 133 and 142.

art 364
relief printmaking I
Explores multiple approaches to creating relief prints.  Starts at an introductory level technically and builds with each new process into an intermediate understanding and working knowledge of the process. Covers linocut, alternative relief matrices, color reduction, and multiple block relief
printing. Offered periodically. Prereq: ART 133 and 142.

art 365
intaglio printmaking I
Explores multiple approaches to creating intaglio prints.  Starts at an introductory level technically and builds with each new process into an intermediate understanding and working knowledge of the process. The course will cover drypoint etching (hardground/softground), aquatint and sugar lift, white ground, toner transfers, spitbite, and will introduce color printing (ala poupee/monoprinting). Offered periodically. Prereq: ART 133
and 142.

art 367
water-based silkscreen printmaking I
Explores multiple approaches to creating water-based silkscreen prints. Starts at an introductory level technically and builds with each new process into an intermediate understanding and working knowledge of the process. Covers basic to intermediate stencil preparation including photographic processes. Offered periodically. Prereq: ART 133 and 142.

art 368
collage
Offers a historical look at the last 100 years of collage as a media for fine art. Highlights of its history will be discussed and followed by a hands-on application of the ideas and imagery that it encompasses. Offered periodically. Preq: ART: 133 and 142.

art 463
lithography printmaking II
Explores multiple approaches to creating color lithography prints. A continuation of Lithography Printmaking I, this course technically builds with each new process into an advanced understanding and working knowledge of the process.  Uses stone lithography, plate lithography, and waterless lithography to explore printed color and individual investigations into artmaking. Offered periodically. Prereq: ART 363.

art 464
relief printmaking II
Builds on the information presented in Relief Printmaking I. Starts at an intermediate level technically and builds with each process into an advanced understanding and working knowledge of the process. Covers linocut, woodcut, alternative relief matrices, color reduction, large format, mixed media, relief monoprinting, and multiple block relief printing. Students will be expected to develop a cohesive body of works from the projects and a personal investigation into artmaking. Offered periodically. Prereq:  ART 364.

art 465
intaglio printmaking II
Explores multiple approaches to creating intaglio prints.  Builds on the techniques in Intaglio Printmaking I and builds with each new process into an advanced understanding and working knowledge of the process. Covers sugar lift, white ground, toner transfers, spitbite, versacel, collograph solar plates, chine colle, ala poupee inking, monoprinting, and multiple plate color printing. Offered periodically. Prereq: ART 365.

art 467
water-based silkscreen printmaking II
Explores multiple approaches to creating water-based silkscreen prints. Starts technically with the information presented in Water-based Silkscreen I and builds with each new process into an advanced understanding and working knowledge of the process.  Covers variations on previous stencil preparations and printing including large format, mixed media, and monoprinting. A strong focus will be on the application of the process to develop a body of work based on a personal investigation into artmaking. Offered periodically. Prereq:  ART 367.

art 468
mixed media printmaking
Explores the strengths of multiple printmaking techniques to create editions of color prints. Utilizes information previously covered in any of the 300-level printmaking courses. Starts at an intermediate technical level and builds with each new process into an advanced understanding and working knowledge of the printmaking process. Covers monoprinting, chine colle, collage, relief samples, electrostatic printmaking, solar plate etching, waterless lithography, hand coloring, and color printing. Offered periodically. Prereq: 300 level printmaking course.

art 469
contemporary issues in printmaking
Explores current trends, conceptual applications and contemporary formats surrounding printmaking. Utilizes information previously covered in any of the 300-level printmaking courses as the base for additional techniques and to build a working knowledge of  printmaking. Starts at an intermediate technical level and builds with each new process into an advanced understanding and working knowledge of the processes.  Covers artist’s books, mail art, nontraditional surfaces, computer applications for traditional prints, mixed media prints, and discusses commercial processes and their application in fine art. Offered periodically. Prereq: 300 level printmaking course.
