Combining conceptual concerns with techniques will be integral to the development of imagery. The course will involve continuous and vigorous visual research of historical and contemporary artist printmakers and teach the techniques of drypoint, etching, engraving, aquatint, monoprints, monotypes, woodcut and linocut.  Printmaking processes will include color printing, multiple plate, combinations of various printmaking techniques, series and large scale prints.  All students will complete a final project of an editioned portfolio exchange of prints and a handmade portfolio.  Individualized areas of investigation are encouraged and expected. In-class work will involve demonstration, discussion and critique.
