COURSE CONTENT

Outcomes and Objectives:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Use the proper techniques of making prints using the stencil process.
2.  Identify and apply elements of fundamental design and drawing to basic level silkscreen processes.
3.  Compose images by hand or via camera-assisted digital processes for printing imagery on fine papers.
4.  Employ registration methods to guarantee accurate over-printing, working from single to multi-color processes.
5.  Demonstrate the proper and safe use of printmaking materials and tools.
6.  Demonstrate a variety of stencil methods, from the most direct to the highly technical.
7.  Create fine art prints that reflect the nature of the materials and processes involved.
8.  Experiment with a variety of approaches for making a visual statement.
9.  Define and differentiate vocabulary for basic level serigraphic print processes.
10.Use creative thinking skills and exercise the aesthetic judgements inherent to the visual arts.
11.Practice aesthetic criticism to reflect an understanding of form, color and composition.
12.Relate silkscreen printmaking to other forms of printmaking and the  fine arts in general.
13.Repeating students will produce new designs each semester, building on both their skill level and knowledge of screen printing techniques.
