This course will introduce students to a wide variety of approaches to fine art printmaking. Students will explore monoprinting techniques, block printing (including linoleum blocks and woodcuts), collograph and drypoint. Some non-toxic approaches to etching on copper plates may also be included in the class. Students will learn to print by hand and also become
skilled in the use of the printing press. Projects will focus on the exploration of visual themes through a series of prints and by creating editions. Visits to local print workshops and exhibitions will enrich the students' studio experience.
