flyer.jpgThis class will reinforce techniques previously learned while exploring and pushing the multi-faceted boundaries of relief and printmaking. Heavy emphasis will be placed on individual research, conceptual development, work, and critiques. The course is conceptually driven as we continue to hone in on craftsmanship. Consideration for alternative relief methods, via field research, will also be stressed. We will have the opportunity to explore alternative ways to relief printing, thereby investigating our definitions and understanding of contemporary printmaking.

Slide lectures, presentations, and reading assignments will provide a historical context to investigations into the media unique to the development of relief’s art forms. Grades will be based on attendance and participation, discussions, completion of assignments, and synthesis of final projects.
