10 am–1 pm | Studio 1 and 2 | $480

No prerequisite.

This course will emphasize the power of line and texture to create a powerful work of art in terms of both expression and composition. For those who are already at that level, other possibilities will be introduced in order to challenge their work and take it to another level. General knowledge of printmaking history with emphasis on intaglio will be offered through the course, as well as familiarizing students with a diverse range of work produced in this medium by renowned artists of the past and present. Students are encouraged to push themselves in order to create diverse visual expressions by relying on intaglio possibilities and understanding the quality and meaning of printmaking as an art form reliant on multiples. Students are expected to propose projects or individual ideas for the course depending on their personal preference. The teacher, if necessary, will offer suggestions so students are able to achieve successful projects by the end of the course.
