Hobart, Launceston

Note:

This unit has a quota. If you cannot enrol in this unit via eStudent due to the quota, please contact the unit coordinator for permission to enrol.

Introduction

Students are introduced to the techniques of printmaking as a process of enquiry and creation.  You will be introduced to the technical and material possibilities of the print medium and you will learn how to use the studio as both a site and tool of production. The print is regarded as a democratic art form and it occupies a prominent place in visual culture. It is capable of being light and portable allowing access to the general population for centuries. It has been embraced and enjoyed as a powerful means of communication.  In contemporary art in particular it is not confined to a traditional 2-dimensional format. Printmaking practice today has expanded into 3-dimensional works, site-specific investigations, artist's books, zines and billboards

Directed by staff and technicians, in the context of a studio/workshop/tutorial curriculum, you will be introduced to traditional techniques, new technologies and approaches to contemporary practice.

Projects include directed learning, collaboration and cross-media engagement and are choreographed and critiqued so as to reflect the breadth of contemporary practice. Students will be encouraged to consider connections to other Studio units.

Study of this unit will involve undertaking basic skills and techniques, and introduce you to experimenting, critiquing and conceptualising media, forms and methods. You will also learn how to source information and materials in addition to applying safe work practices.
