Printmaking offers a diverse palette of marks for the artist. This course will investigate how these can be used to enrich a drawing. Over the course of the term we will explore the characters of a wide range of printmaking approaches. We will examine intaglio methods such as Drypoint, Collograph and Etching, and relief methods such as Woodcut. Technical demonstrations will introduce each method’s potential as a drawing method: from the scratchy marks of drypoint to the fluid, painterly marks of Monoprint or Carborundum. Each week a still life or theatrical set-up will provide visual material to draw from. Students will be encouraged to draw directly onto their plates from direct observation. Print’s capacity for repetition will then allow free experimentation with colour, chine-collé and wiping methods. Over the course of the term individuals will develop their own projects and in the later weeks will be challenged to combine approaches to create multi-layered, multi-process prints. Students should bring their own paint brushes and any specialist drawing materials they would like to work with. This course is suitable for beginners and advanced printmakers.
