Instructor: Mark Johnsen

Topic: Plates and states

In this course, students will be introduced to each major area of the print studio, including lithography, silkscreen, etching, and relief. Within these processes, the matrix or plate holds constant as the carrier of information, though it can be altered infinitely to depict, disrupt and examine an array of states. 

By addressing concepts of originality, value, dissemination, publication as well as traditional and contemporary printmaking, this hybrid course will simultaneously engage students working in each medium. Students will be introduced to the basics of these mediums as well as the functioning/communal environment of the print studio. 

This class provides the opportunity for students to be introduced to each area of the print studio while diving into the specificity and technical elements of printmaking as an all-encompassing medium. Following a rotating schedule, 4 main projects will be introduced and taken over by 4 groups of students concurrently inhabiting each area of the print studio. This class is structured to fully engage the entire print studio while providing focused access to each area’s facilities and resources.
