Advanced Processes in Printmaking I
This advanced-level course investigates contemporary trends in printmaking, including digital and photomechanical processes. Color work is emphasized, combining the use of polymer films and presensitized plates with traditional grounds and techniques. Demonstrated techniques include transfer, positive and negative working plates, and four-color separation. Presswork encompasses the registration and printing of multiple plates and the production of a body of work that displays sound printing expertise and professional practice. The exploration of cross-media applications is encouraged, and students may choose to work in litho, intaglio or both. Students are expected to develop a body of work that articulates an inventive and conceptual use of the printed image and a clear personal vision. Prerequisite(s): PRMK 401.
