Credits: 2

An introduction to the principles and the process of Photo Lithography. Photo Lithography is the reproduction process used in the commercial offset printing industry. This course is concerned with developing a working vocabulary of print making terms, concepts such as color separation, edition, registration, and multiple state proofing, and group problem solving/collaboration. Class discussions consider the use of mechanical and digital reproduction, appropriation, and multiples in contemporary design. Students will explore interdisciplinary uses of the printed image, including book arts, sculptural objects and collaborative images. This course typically includes some type of outreach component, such as attending a print swap, organizing a print exchange or creating posters for an event held within the term. Near the end of the semester, each student defines an area of personal emphasis and develops an individual body of work incorporating one or more of these printmaking concepts.

Open to: Associate degree in Graphic Design majors and Printmaking minors only.
