Title:   Introduction to Woodcut/Monoprint      

Course Number:      PRT 001701
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

This class is for students who are interested in exploring the expressive potential of the woodcut/relief print. The simplicity of woodcut facilitates direct, intuitive involvement, and allows for great flexibility in scale and individual approach; this may range from developing stark, powerful images in black-and-white to building rich, textural, and painterly images in color. The emphasis of this class will be on the development of individual vision and approach to the medium. We will cover basic technical information on various woods for printmaking, linoleum and plastic blocks, inks, tools and tool maintenance, paper, printing both with and without a press, color, and options for multi-block and reduction prints. Additional techniques will be introduced according to the ongoing needs and direction of the class related to monoprinting, and experimentation with color.
-This course has a materials fee of $120
-Class includes a scheduled one-hour break
