VART2227 Printmaking (3 units)
- VART1006 Visual Arts Practice II or any GDCV courses offered by AVA or any Visual Arts courses
This course is an introduction to the techniques and theories central to the practice of Printmaking. Initially it aims at providing students with an overview of both traditional and contemporary printmaking, printing processes, and the value of printmaking in the contemporary visual arts landscape. Following this more theoretical opening, this is a practical course designed to allow students to explore and experiment with printmaking in its various forms and applications, and to develop their critical understanding of the uniqueness of this creative field of practice.
Through exposure to hands-on projects, students will become acquainted with a range of printing processes including mono printing, relief printing, Intaglio printing, lithography, screenprinting and digital printing. Students will first focus on traditional techniques, then progress to applying contemporary techniques.
By the end of the course, students will endeavour to experimentally print with and on uncommon materials, and to combine various printing techniques to find a personal way of expressing their visual ideas in print.
