This course will introduce students to transitory and print-media based approaches to street art. We will begin with a survey of printmaking and ephemera street art, during which students will be encouraged to share with the class street art from their own neighborhoods. With this new knowledge as inspiration, the class will embark on its studio component, which will cover instruction on relief carving, hand printing, wheat pasting, stencils, home-made chalk paint, and rain activated spray. All skill levels are welcome; no prior experience with printmaking is required.
