Hours & Credits
OverviewPrintmaking - Methods and the Matrix will offer studio-based instruction involving class discussion and practical demonstration in a range of etching techniques from matrix development using hardground line, aquatint, lift ground and deep-etch methods to several printing strategies that include basic colour methods. You will be assessed relative to your interpretation and realisation of 2 set projects that investigate core thematic and technical issues relevant to current art in print. With this knowledge, you will then apply basic research skills in an analysis of historic and current graphic trends in the production of a self-directed practical project. This 2nd year introductory studio course contributes to one of two, four-course specialist Printmaking 'streams' and offers preparation for advanced study in 3rd year and may also be taken as an elective where places are available.
