Instructor: Claire Cowie
Instructional Technician: Kim van Someren

This course is an exploration of the woodblock relief printmaking process, using oil-based inks on paper. The development of a mature and personal statement in terms of content and imagery will be expected. The first half of the quarter focuses on black and white image-making (value, texture, pattern, composition). Students will use stencils and the registration of multiple plates as an avenue for layered color investigations in the second half of the quarter. Some exercises are collaborative, and short group discussions are a regular activity. The aim is to expand the repertoire of visual language, to encourage direct invention in the medium of relief printing, and to foster a method of thinking artistically through the making of original prints. Successful completion of this course requires active participation in all class sessions as well as significant studio work time outside of class.
