Printmaking is the art of carving, etching or making marks on a plate or surface that can then be transferred multiple times to another surface, typically paper or fabric. The process involves applying ink to the plate and then uses pressure to transfer the ink to the paper. The paper with the image on it is the work of art.
Examples of printmaking are woodcuts, etchings, engravings, screen prints and lithography. The earliest example of printmaking is from China around 206 B.C. and eventually made book making more possible and versatile.
In this class we will do styrofoam prints, collagraphs, etchings and monoprints. We will work on composition and color theory as well as the printing techniques.
