Two-Dimensional Mixed Media

This class uses printmaking, drawing and painting media as a way of exploring how to combine those various media and techniques to allow the student to develop imagery with a personal thematic approach.  In class presentations are conducted that present monoprint, intaglio, stone lithography, silkscreen and relief print techniques (wood and linoleum cut) as a means for each student to explore and develop their imagery.  Students are expected to complete a full range of preliminary and exploratory drawings as a way to develop their concept, as well as a way to improve their technical and perceptual drawing abilities.  The various media are presented as something to be a means for each student, not to be used a trick by the student to show their proficiency with each media on a pure technical level.
