SPRING 2021 NEW COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT
Illustration and Printmaking have a rich intertwined history. With a shared interest in storytelling and the dissemination of ideas, this overlap remains deeply consequential today for contemporary practitioners within both areas. In this course, students will study and reflect on this history as they explore the materials and methods of printmaking to create narrative works that interpret and depict the surrounding world. Using both analogue and digital methods, students will explore stamp and stencil print aesthetics, image construction, color layering and mixing, and the production of editioned illustrated works. The class will focus on both relief processes and risograph printing. Each student will receive a custom built press designed for use in their at home studio space.
Prerequisite: FF 111 or FF 112, and FF 161
