This course focuses on printing without a press and utilizes materials that can be found around the house. Students will be engaged through technical demonstrations, hands-on experience, and lectures. 

 

We experience patterns in life every day, both man-made and naturally occurring. They affect the way we see and experience the spaces we are in, the objects we confront, and reveal the relationship between vision and perception. As an introduction, students will be asked to make a collage with rubbings of textures and materials found around their house. This will lead into a discussion of relief printing and how to select materials for producing collagraph plates. Students will then be introduced to the history of collagraph and shown work from a variety of artists that utilize collagraph in their work. Finally, students will be guided through the process of making a collagraph plate and hand printing.
