Contemporary Printmaking – Intermediate

Key Course Information

Contemporary Printmaking covers the intaglio techniques such as etching, monoprint, drypoint, collagraph and focuses on aspects of these to build on the skills taught in the Introduction to Printmaking course.Combining techniques will be encouraged and you will be directed to follow your own ideas as they develop during the course to increase your confidence as an artist. Regular discussion in class about contemporary artist’s work, their ideas and approach, will help inform projects and your own printmaking practice. 

This course will provide an opportunity for experienced printmakers to further their exploration of the diverse processes and techniques offered in print.  You will work in the well-equipped studio with specialist facilities to further develop your ideas and imagery into a portfolio of prints.

Working within a studio provides a unique dynamic which encourages group discussions, collaboration and cross pollination of ideas and approaches, and can be a great way for artists to enhance their practice both technically and conceptually.  You will be supported in this activity through individual tutorials and group critiques which are aimed at encouraging a useful reflective practice.

Final prints can be submitted for our end of year Printmaking Exhibition at the college gallery in early July when we enjoy a lively Private View evening to celebrate the work created during the year on all our courses.
