It is expected that students will pursue work of an individual nature with an emphasis on a graphic sensibility. Concentration on a particular medium or process such as intaglio, lithography, relief print or artists books will be offfered by the lecturer teaching this unit.
Objectives: On completion of this unit students will have been encouraged to select one printmaking process (intaglio, relief, planographic) and explore the technical and image-making possibilities in greater depth; and continue to develop the expressive potential of printmaking as an extension to their major study by exploring ideas and developing projects that originate in the studios of painting, sculpture, ceramics or photography.
