ART 3305 - Print Media: The Hybrid Print
Fall or Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.
Prerequisite: ART 2301 .
Printmaking’s evolving language, a hybrid vocabulary of newly available materials, tools and methods with traditional techniques, is expanding the concept of the printed edition and facilitating new and radical explorations of scale, dimension, content and display. This course encourages students, like many contemporary artists working in print media, to define printmaking in their own terms by stressing traditional and experimental platemaking, digital printing and fabricating, editionable collage and hand-finishing techniques, and strategies for successfully merging these disparate methods into finished prints.
Beyond Cornell, this course offers field trips to the Editions/Artist Book Fair, IPCNY Print Fair, and professional print shops and print collection of the Johnson Museum. Depending on the semester this course may involve a collaborative project with a visiting artist.
