Student Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
Untitled document
1.  Create well-conceived, technically complex, advanced screen prints.
2.  Integrate aesthetically pleasing elements, including appropriate photography and typography,
    into design.
3.  Give and receive constructive feedback of artwork by participating in formal group critiques.

Objectives: Untitled document
1. Use a variety of stencil methods efficiently from the most direct to the highly technical.
2. Create fine art prints that reflect a more personal vision and a higher level of technical
3. Demonstrate a personal direction of image-making, requiring greater skills and sophistication

4. Exemplify the proper and safe use of printmaking materials and tools.
5. Use printmaking terms and apply an understanding of their meaning.
6. Demonstrate an increasingly advanced understanding of form, color and composition,
    especially as it applies to printmaking and poster arts.
