Printmaking Techniques FSR113

Hobart

Note:

Intensive mode delivery:  dates to be advised

Introduction

This unit will give students skills in a variety of printmaking processes and techniques, which will serve to prepare them for further study in the printmaking major as well as support a broader range of study in the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Students will be introduced to experimental and non-toxic printmaking techniques that can be used outside of a print workshop environment. It is not necessary for students to have knowledge of printmaking as the emphasis is on using the expressive qualities of the materials. This unit is also aimed at students who may wish to refresh their knowledge of the technical aspects of printmaking.
