In this workshop, students will be introduced to the fundamental techniques of drawing through monoprints and collages. Students are welcome to bring their own images, themes, or pre-existing work if they would like. The objective of the course is to provide students with an interdisciplinary link between drawing and printmaking and challenge the porous boundary between the two. Drawing is the most important and crucial part of any printmaking method, and prints can in turn refine and revolutionize the way drawings are produced. Using pen and ink, pencil, brushes, conventional, and unconventional drawing media, students will work to discover imagery and the peculiarities of their technique, which they can then bring to printmaking. While the workshop will focus on generating work, there will be opportunities for group and individual critique as well as open discussions throughout each class. For students who wish, there should be ample time to develop a portfolio of prints. However, the ultimate goal of the course is simply to learn and have fun in the process of making.
