Printmaking

Course Details

Wednesdays, Feb 26 - Apr 1 | 6:30-9:30pm
ages 18+ | RISD Campus | 2020/CS-PRINT-4403
6 sessions | 18 contact hours | tuition $365 | lab fee $20


Description

Japanese woodblock printmaking, a traditional thousand-year-old process, combines ink or paint and nori (rice paste) with hand-pressing techniques to create prints and -- distinct from Western techniques -- does not require a press. Students begin by practicing both carving techniques and printing with sumi ink. More advanced applications of color follow, including color gradation (bokashi) and making multiple block prints. Registration and numbering the prints are also discussed. To be true to the classic art form, design and composition are integral considerations in the development of individual imagery. Japanese prints exerted an enormous influence on the West, inspiring artists and -- as the prints were inexpensive and plentiful -- providing one of the first opportunities for affordable art collecting. Please note that in addition to the lab fee, you can expect to have to buy additional supplies for this class. We try to keep this cost under $100, but for specialized classes (jewelry, wood, metals) this may be higher.

Applies to: NS-E, PS-E

Description

Monoprinting is a one-of-a-kind printed painting, a versatile printing process in which inks are applied directly onto or wiped away from a Plexiglas surface. The plates are printed by hand so that students can execute ideas quickly, allowing for a very spontaneous way of generating prints. As students gain confidence and learn the intricacies of printing, experimentation with the medium is encouraged. The techniques of chine colle -- rice paper lightly glued to create layered color -- and trace monoprints expand individual options. Practicalities of single and multi-plate registration, texturing techniques, layering and washes are demonstrated as well as color mixing and collographs. Please note that non-toxic water-based media are used in this course.
