Intermediate and advanced studies of relief printmaking processes will focus on the individual development of your artistic work, with an emphasis on conceptual, technical, and aesthetic concerns. Students will create prints through hands-on studio work and projects, and will analyze their work through group critiques as well as examination of prints from a variety of cultural, conceptual, and historical standpoints. As the semester progresses, students will gain increased awareness of the creative and expressive possibilities of relief printmaking. They will also be expected to develop an increasingly complex body of work through their personal vocabulary with the media. This more advanced course may be repeated for credit.
