PRNT 215 - Image + Text Through Print

This course introduces students to the fundamentals of different relief processes which are applied to creating art works based on concept-led inquiry. Students consider text in relationship to imagery as well as explore how text is used as imagery. Students learn how to apply a range of relief techniques, develop their own imagery, discuss it in a critical context, and learn to work cleanly and safely in a shared environment. Students are introduced to contemporary and historical artists who work with relief processes as well as artists who use text in their work. The course will consist of technical demonstrations, lectures, critiques, and critical discussion.

NOTE:  Students considering majoring in print must also take one of PRNT.210 or PRNT.211
