PRINTMAKING

Printmaking: A Mixed Media Approach (PRNT203-36)

This course introduces students to expressive ways of using material and processes in printmaking. The focus is on monoprinting and collagraphic techniques. Students learn how to develop a multi-levelled textured surface that can be enhanced or combined with other media. Monoprinting is a spontaneous and painterly method of creating a one-of-a-kind print that uses a flat surface of a plastic plate where the ink is put on (additive) or removed (subtractive) to produce a range of tones and visual effects. Collagraphs are by contrast, essentially collaged surfaces that create a range of textures that catch the ink to create a rich and unusual print. All kinds of materials may be used: old lace, dried plant material, plaster, acrylic compounds such as crackle paste, fibre paste and pumice gel. Blind embossing (a term used for creating an embossed or raised surface impression on paper without any ink on the plate surface), and application of metal leaf on finished prints will also be examined. Course will include hands-on demonstrations and time allocated to work on the press.

Intaglio Printmaking: Drypoint (PRNT216-36)

This course is an introduction to intaglio printmaking, offering an in-depth study of drypoint to expand one’s drawing practice. Students will be introduced to key printmaking terminology, explore basic engraving materials and techniques, and experience creating limited editioned prints with the printing press. Students will learn to use drypoint needles, etching squeegees, intaglio inks, registration systems, bevels, scrapers, burnishers, and other materials and equipment through explorations of grey-scale, color, and chine-collé printing, incorporating various metal plates. The course will include demonstrations, group critiques, and extensive studio-time, and is structured for students to integrate their own conceptual interests into their investigations of drypoint.

Monoprinting: Painting & Collage (PRNT219-36)

This course focuses on innovative ways of producing and incorporating monoprints and collage into a mixed media painting. Monoprinting, acrylic paint skins, collage modules (preassembled "collaged groupings"), image transfer and subtractive painting techniques will be explored. Monoprinting is a method of creating a one-of-a-kind print that uses a flat surface of a plastic plate where the ink is put on (additive) or removed (subtractive) to produce a range of tones and visual effects. Subtractive or negative painting techniques help to define form and strengthen composition by selectively removing or painting over part of the background. Course will also include presentations and hands-on demonstrations. Generating ideas from combining these techniques will help students push through many of the road blocks related to content and execution in mixed media painting.
