ART 343 New Media Printmaking (4 per semester/maximum of 8)

ART 343 is a studio art class that focuses on creating and critically evaluating printed media. Problem solving with new and traditional print technologies will allow the student to use both the computer and the printing press as a means to a creative end. Students will acquire the skills to critically participate in our technology driven culture, while at the same time they will develop an appreciation for the aesthetics of the handmade. This course will explore the nature and potential of printed media through lectures, readings, demonstrations, studio practice, and critiques. Various conceptually driven assignments will cover a range of graphic computer programs (Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator) and specific print outputs (digital, photo litho, photo etching and serigraphy) These assignments will engage students in research methods to advance their skills in printed media and help them to develop an understanding of the critical evaluation and assessment of Art.
