What does it mean to make multiples today?
In this class, artists and art movements will be discussed within the context of their times.
Events fertilize the creative soil, prints result, and the fruits are thus dispersed as an example for
us. By looking back, we will challenge arbitrary restrictions that may arise while we diversify
our natural palettes for future production.

Nick LaPole is a painter, sculpture, and printmaker living in Brooklyn, NY. With drawing as a fulcrum, his work follows the path of dwellings, interiors, and observations that play along the
spectrum of concrete and abstraction. He figures education is at its best when methods make autonomous, contingent human beings; artmaking is the core of autonomy.
