Outcomes and Objectives:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Explore more thoroughly the techniques of making screenprints learned
   in Art 27A.
2.  Continue to use a variety of stencil methods, from the most direct to
   the highly technical.
3.  Create fine art prints which reflect a more personal vision and a
   higher level of technical competence.
4.  Explore more challenging levels of image making requiring greater
   skills and sophistication over a more sustained period of time.
5.  Exemplify, to the beginning level students, the proper and safe use of
   printmaking materials and tools.
6.  Use the vocabulary of printmaking terms and demonstrate an
   understanding of their meaning.
7.  Use creative thinking skills at a higher level and continue to
   exercise aesthetic judgments inherent to the visual arts.
8.  Sharpen one's aesthetic criticism and demonstrate a greater under-
   standing of form, color and composition.
9.  Investsigate the poster as form of visual communication and vehicle
   for personal expression.

Topics and Scope
Untitled document
This course will build on the technical foundation established in the
first semester of silkscreen printmaking.  Again, the emphasis will be on
the creative uses of this process for the making of prints.  The in-
structor will work with the individual students in helping them to develop
projects that extend stencil techniques and image-making processes ex-
plored in the first semester.
Students will be encouraged to focus on a specific aspect of silkscreen
printmaking that holds a special interest for them.  Subject matter, size,
stencil processes, number of runs, etc., for their prints will be reviewed
on an individual basis.  Depending upon complexity, second semester silk-
screen students will be expected to produce approximatley six finished
prints by the end of the semester for three units of credit.

Untitled document
Below are some of the suggested processes and concepts students will be
asked to choose from.  Other projects, not listed here, will also be con-
sidered.  The subject matter for these assignments may involve self-
portrait, landscape, still life, the figure, as well as non-objective
1.  Photographic posterization.
2.  Photostencil/progressive blockout combined.
3.  Photographic image restructured/rearranged.
4.  Full-color separations made by hand.
5.  Halftone dotand photo mechanical tonal process.
6.  Mechanical dot and pattern structures to develop pattern.
7.  Multi-registration or shifting registration overlaps.
8.  Oil pastel and hand application of color through stencils.
9.  Mixed-media combinations, hand coloring, collage, other printmaking
10. Geometric forms and patterns - multiple hand-cut films.
11. Color as content-color interaction/relativity-Josef Albers, et al.
12. Modular or repeated form/image building, tiling.
13. Sequential or serial imagery.
14. Thematic variation of a subject.
15. Color transparency overlaps to build an image.
16. The print as a 3-dimensional object (shaped, folded, combined).
17. The print made into a book format.
18. The poster as a fine art print.
