Printmaking: Photo-based Processes
Winter 2014 quarter
Traditional printmaking processes and photographic techniques combine in this comprehensive overview of photo-based intaglio, serigraphy, photopolymer, cyanotypes, and photolithography. Using computer-generated, digital positives and negatives as films, students will prepare and expose light-sensitized paper, copper plates, screens, polymer, and aluminum plates to create distinctive hand-printed imagery. Throughout the course, students will also study the history and contemporary applications of the medium. While introductory, this course is highly process-based and technical in nature. Students are expected to have prior digital image editing experience. Experience in printmaking and/or photography would also be beneficial.
