Hours & Credits
OverviewThis subject will explore through studio practice and theory, the artmaking processes of printing and collage, and their diverse purposes as forms of communication and social engagement. The subject offers a practice-based investigation orientated towards community and collaborative learning. This investigation involves engaging in an artistic collaboration with a local school, and in a negotiated community project incorporating artistic practice. Key principles of visual perception, design and analysis will be reinforced through explorations in a range of printmaking techniques (such as photographic screenprinting, stencil printing, lino printing, collographs) and collage-making techniques. The subject caters for students with varied prior experiences in visual arts practice.
