Fall 2015 - Undergraduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
This course will focus on printmaking specific to the silkscreen art form. The use of silkscreen as a contemporary art medium has gained unprecedented popularity in recent years. Students will engage in three silkscreen print projects, addressing issues of process, technique, design and image development. They will begin with color field printing and optical design, working into color process printing and computer generated image transfers. Students will also explore new applications for incorporating silkscreen properties into other print forms and traditional mediums such as painting and 3D applications. Students who have taken this class previously may work on their own self-directed projects.
