An intensive studio practice that explores the intersections between direct drawing techniques and indirect drawing as practiced in printmaking. Emphasis is given to skill building in both drawing and printmaking as this serves to expand the materials and techniques, processes, and conceptual approaches employed by artists to create 2D art works. Projects are directed to develop the student’s ability to work independently and explore subject matter drawn from observation and imagination in color and black and white media. Instruction provided in drawing using wet and dry media, the printmaking processes of drypoint, relief and monotype, and basic construction of books. Lecture and discussion, writing and research, studio projects and critiques. This course may be repeated once for credit. Prerequisite: ART 204, ART 205 or permission of the instructor.
