Printmaking LAB

Printmaking LAB


PRINTMAKING LAB is a 6-week course that introduces students to several printmaking techniques: monotype, drypoint, linoleum etching, and paper lithography. All materials are provided. No prior art or printmaking experience is necessary.

Weeks 1-2: MONOTYPES—We’ll explore 3 different ways to use this printmaking technique: Additive, Subtractive, and Trace monotypes. Students will make works with each one and in combination with one another.

Week 3-4: DRYPOINT—An intaglio method of printmaking: the image is cut directly into Plexiglas, inked, and then printed, creating a print similar to an etching, with very expressive lines.

Week 5: LINOLEUM ETCHING—Although it’s commonly carved, linoleum can also be “etched” utilizing chemicals. The resulting imagery can be printed as a stand-alone work or combined with other media. We’ll also briefly explore carving linoleum using tools.

WEEKS 6: PAPER LITHOGRAPHY—A variation on traditional lithography in which prints are made directly from a photographic or drawn image. Allows for a range of expression and experimentation with imagery.
