There will be a focus on drawing, layering and experimentation.
You will have the opportunity to learn the basic steps involved in printing, to maintain a print shop and tools, and to develop technically and conceptually.
Frequent demonstrations and class participation is mandatory. A good deal of studio work-time outside of class is required.
