Contemporary Printmaking with Chris Hagen balances the instruction of printmaking practice and discussion of the topics that make print what-it-is-today. This semester explores “poly-plate” lithography and wood lithography. However, students are encouraged to combine instructed techniques with any forms of printing they practice. Articles on contemporary practice will be circulated and discussed as a group. Introductory experience with at least one form of printing is highly recommended — beginning students should contact the instructor before enrolling.
