Screenprinting, or Seriography, is a form of printing that enables the atist with a high degree of flexibility and creative possibilities. It is also a process that has been used innovateively within a range of contexts - from the fine arts through to social movements. This upper-division course engages students in a range of methods of screenprinting, including stencils, drawing fluids, direct applicaitons in addition to the emulsion/exposure process. Students will be assigned readings that draw from the history of the uses of the media in both the art and social context. Students will be assigned a range of small projects to expose them to the various technical processes available. After gaining this technical knowledge, students will go on to select a methodology and a content area to construct a project that will result in an edition of screenprints. The course will require students to analyze and respond to readings in order to help build vocabularly and knowldege of the form. This analysis will be used by students to help deepen thier understanding of the work they elct to make in thier creative practice. Students will visit local art spaces, and guests will visit the class to discuss the uses of screenprinting, or perform ‘studio visits’.
