Gippsland First semester 2005 (Day)
Gippsland Second semester 2005 (Day)
Synopsis: By this semester, students will have a reasonable command of their chosen printmaking medium(s). They should be aware of expressive possibilities, both conceptually and visually, and therefore have the ability to design an individually approved program. This program should take into account their major field of study. Concentration on a particular medium or process such as intaglio, lithography, relief printing or artist's book will be offered by the lecturer teaching this unit.
Objectives: On completion of this unit students will be expected to have developed a level of technical competence that will enable them to work independently in the printmaking medium(s) of their choice; have designed and developed an individually approved study program from which a personal approach to printmaking can be derived; and have demonstrated an understanding of the processes and workshop practices (editioning etc) associated with printmaking and to do so with an attitude that is professional.
Assessment: Artistic and conceptual development: 45% + Technical achievement: 45% + Contribution to critiques: 10%
Contact Hours: 12 hours per week, including 4 studio hours and 8 independent study hours
