203 Printmaking

4-color Silkscreen

 Printmaking is an exciting and rewarding course where students will have hands on experiences working in specific techniques such as block printing, collagraph, mono printing, relief, silkscreen and mixed media.  Basic elements and principles of design will be stressed within printed compositions. A variety of printmaking techniques will be utilized. Class activities are project based and give students an opportunity to practice art fundamentals while learning technical skills in Printmaking.

Everything we do will be in careful progression, building on past projects and combining ideas to push students to the greatest levels of possible success. It is important for students to keep up with all projects in order to keep up with the progression.

Be prepared to question and critique your own work as well as the work of other artists and approach each art process with an open mind and positive attitude. Students will be designing and creating on a daily basis.
