ART 110 - Printmaking 1

3 credits

An introduction to printmaking that offers creative opportunities to students of varying skill levels. Students explore realistic, abstract, and non-objective themes using a variety of basic printmaking techniques such as line etching, aquatint, linoleum block, monotype, and collograph. Computers are available for image development.

Notes: Printmaking is the technical and aesthetic area of the visual arts in which the artist draws on (or otherwise manipulates) a print surface of some kind (such as a linoleum block or piece of etching zinc). Original works, resembling drawings, are created by applying ink to the incised (or otherwise treated) print surface and pressing paper against it.
Corequisite: No previous art or printmaking experience is necessary.
