Intaglio Printmaking

Scratching the Surface
In this course we will explore studio instruction in traditional and contemporary methods of intaglio printmaking with a critical emphasis on different methods of working directly on the plate. The general term intaglio (from the Italian intagliare, which means to engrave, carve, or cut) covers a multitude of processes. The incised line in the plate holds the ink while the surface is wiped clean. Only the line prints when paper is placed on the plate and both are run through the etching press. The course is augmented by slide lectures to provide the students with a thorough background in the intaglio medium as well as other drawing based mediums. Depending on resources, students may have the opportunity to be a part of an intensive, collaborative print project to produce an edition of prints with a professional artist. (ART 0157, ART 0158, ART 0159 or by approval) 6 hrs. lect.

Sculpture II

Sculpture II: Welcome to the Artist Collective
Working in small groups or as an entire class, we will tackle concepts and techniques that require more than one head and many hands. Performance projects will hone our abilities to conceptualize a piece from start to finish. The creation of wearable sculptures will provide ample opportunity for material exploration, and developing a site-specific space into an all encompassing installation will allow for greater personal connection to the work we create. Techniques employed in this class will include: woodworking, welding, sewing, and plastic inflatable construction. (ART 0157, ART 0158 or ART 0159 or by approval) 6 hrs. lect. lab

Oil Paint & Ceramic Portraits

Portraiture In Oil Painting and Sculpture
In this class we will make images and objects of the human figure. Our approach will be two-fold: We will make glazed-ceramic portrait sculptures, which will be used as the basis for large-scale oil paintings. In doing so, we will learn how artists throughout history made oil paintings by creating and using visual source material. Our paintings will, as the need arises, integrate three-dimensional additions made from fired-ceramic, enameled copper, and/or fused glass. In these ways we will explore concepts of decoration, jewelry, and clothing. We will use digital photography throughout to record, analyze, and invent. In addition to weekly image-based lectures on the history of portraiture and design, the class will be include close, individual instruction within a collaborative workshop atmosphere.
