After a brief introduction to various printmaking media, this course focuses primarily on intaglio. While instruction will be given in many techniques and processes available to the printmaker--etching, aquatint, drypoint, chin-collé, relief--students are expected to adapt these methods to their own particular vision. Students learn to develop a print through a series of proofs with critical consideration as an important input in this progression from idea sketch to final edition. Extensive use is made of the Davison Art Center print collection.
