Studio Art 215. Relief Printmaking

An introduction to relief printing: students will create linocuts and woodcuts in black and white, as well as reduction prints and multi-block prints in color. Students also will experiment with contemporary relief materials using hand drawn and digitally manipulated imagery. Technical aspects include carving techniques, figure ground reversal, color mixing, registration and edition printing for class portfolio projects. Students will explore their creative process as they develop and refine concepts and composition, including the discipline of daily sketchbook activity.
