Shepard Fairey, the controversial RISD alumnus, manipulates found images to create his dynamic posters, following in the tradition of Andy Warhol's graphic icons. Through printmaking -- a process used to duplicate an image -- both original and found imagery can be layered to create original collages in multiple editions of identical or altered variations. In this course, students learn several non-press printing techniques that can be replicated at home, such as relief prints, silkscreen and pronto plates. Throughout the course, they practice their printmaking craftsmanship to create portfolio-quality two-dimensional works that are surprisingly consistent or uniquely different.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.
