Contemporary printmaking approaches using a variety of light-sensitive polymer plates, carborundum plates, and other alternatives to classic printmaking processes. Images are prepared by digital and manual means and combine new processes with traditional methods. Emphasis is on teaching graphic art concepts to develop visual statements and commentary, vocabulary, technical skills, and analysis of printmaking aesthetics, historical context, cultural traditions and craftsmanship through projects, discussion, and oral and written criticism.
