Spring 2011 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
This course will explore the printmaking art of Silkscreen. We will discuss the rich history of Serigraphy (silkscreen) and its current resurgence of popularity in the art world.
The majority of the course will focus on the actual creation of silkscreen print projects addressing issues of process, technique and image development. Students can take advantage of UTD's excellent print studio facilities beginning with color field printing and then working into color process printing and computer generated image transfers. The use of silkscreen as an art medium incorporated into other traditional mediums will be encouraged as a way to develop the potential application of one's imagery and effects.
