Semester: 

Fall

Offered: 

2019

Matt Saunders, Jennifer L. Roberts

Tuesday & Thursday, 12:00pm - 2:45pm

Incorporating both studio and seminar instruction, this intensive course will explore printmaking’s history, trace its particular forms of intelligence, and test its future potential. The class will meet for three hours of studio and two hours of seminar/discussion per week. Assignments will include weekly readings, a short scholarly paper, and two studio projects. For the first half of the semester, students will pursue a rigorous grounding in a particular historical technique (etching/intaglio); in the second half students will translate what they have learned to another medium, thus exploring printmaking as an expanded field of practice.

The course is designed for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in any related department. Interested students must attend the first meeting of the class during shopping week.
