Students in this course have the opportunity to express themselves in drawing, painting, and printmaking techniques. Emphasis is placed on acquiring a wide range of skills. In print-making, students will produce block prints, mono prints, embossings and etchings. Using the campus, we will draw and paint outdoors. Studio work will include portraiture and life drawing from professional models. Projects include both assigned and independent, student-initiated pieces in traditional and contemporary formats. The class provides time for skill development, which supports students’ independent work.
