Graphic Design and Silkscreen
Fall 2024
Taught By: Emily Wardwell
Section: A

CRN: 7664

Credits: 3

This studio course is designed to give students a foundational exposure to graphic design using printmaking as a reproduction technique. Where digital printing is predictable, the art of silk screening allows for creative exploration and artistic design making that is more unexpected. Students from different majors can learn how to custom tailor their imagery. This includes research of silkscreen prints in museums, galleries, of artist’s, of designers and master printer studios which will broaden each student’s development of methodologies and further their insight into the history of print and the relevance of printmaking today. Students will gain a broader understanding of image making; an expanded understanding of how research drives concepts and how to arrive at the most interesting solution. Graphic design and silkscreen is a challenging course focusing as much on the process of image creation as the finished product. Assignments will focus on art and design solutions incorporating image + text. Fundamental tools and skill sets will be explored and developed. This course takes an experimental approach to creating form and symbolism that ultimately contributes to the development of a unique visual language. The goal of these studies is to increasingly expose the richness of the story of an object throughout the semester. Students will complete this Introduction with a portfolio of original prints and design solutions that incorporate a variety of hands-on printmaking techniques. The class is open to beginning and advanced students. This course is equivalent to PAGD 1098 Graphic Design and Silkscreen.
