Course Description: The content of my class is as follows: students will produce prints on paper.
This process is easy to learn and require few supplies. We will learn about historical printmakers
including Durer and Picasso through lectures, visual aids, and homework. Students will follow a
step-by-step procedure in the production of their prints. They will begin by drawing shapes on
cardboard and cutting them out. These shapes will be glued onto a large sheet of cardboard. The
students will use brayers to apply ink to the surface or their cardboard. A sheet of paper will be
placed on top of the inked surface. The students will rub the back of the paper to transfer the ink.
The paper is carefully peeled off the cardboard creating a print. Each print should be allowed to
completely dry before undergoing any additional marking such as drawing or writing on the surface.
Students will be encouraged to comment on others’ work in an aesthetic and critical manner before
the close of the session
