How to use printmaking as a viable approach for illustrating magazines and fine books is the focus of this course. Students will be introduced to basic etching and monoprint techniques, including hard ground, soft ground, aquatint and color printing. Students will be encouraged to select or develop a story and then to illustrate it with the techniques they find most interesting. Artists past and present who used printmaking as an illustration technique will be discussed and studied. Previous printmaking experience is not required.
