Many students say printmaking is addictive once you start! So why not come and try one of our courses. Course Overview This Introductin to Printmaking course is a practical studio based programme and combines structured teaching and informal workshop time. You will gain a good overview of the printmaking media and grounding in a wide range of techniques such as Drypoint, Collagraph, Lino cut, Monoprinting, Etching and Photo-Etching. Course Description You will learn to work in the light and the well-equipped print studio with specialist facilities and develop your ideas and imagery into a portfolio of creative prints. You will be introduced to each printmaking technique by demonstration while looking at the work of other artists. Following techniques will be covered throughout the year; Drypoint, Collagraph, Lino cut, Monoprinting, Etching and Photo-Etching. Informal one-to-one tutorials, group tutorials and feedback will encourage each student’s personal strengths and interests. You are encouraged to explore the creative and more experimental possibilities of these processes while also gaining a good working knowledge of the traditional skills. In the third term, presentation of prints, editioning guidelines and mounting skills will be taught in preparation for finished work to be shown in the printmaking end of year summer show at the Hortensia Gallery. What background and qualifications do you need to join? (Entry Requirements) These classes are aimed at beginners, those who wish to re-fresh their printmaking skills and those who have a basic arts experience in any other visual arts discipline. What does the course lead to? These courses give an opportunity to build a portfolio of prints to assist progression to our more advanced printmaking courses or other art courses. Where will I study? The printmaking studio is at the Chelsea Centre, Hortensia Road, just off the Kings Road, in the Carlyle building on the ground floor, room CG05. How much should I study outside class? It is recommended that you prepare imagery and materials, of your choice, outside the class, so you can use the time in the studio more fully for printing and technical processing which cannot be done at home. A sketchbook documenting your ideas development, technical notes and research is also recommended. Are any course materials online? Once you are enrolled on the course you will be introduced to the college’s virtual learning environment. Here you will find materials and information in support of your studies. What books and equipment do I need? You need to bring: a sketchbook and some art equipment such as pencils, eraser, a range of brushes, Stanley knife, scissors and apron. You will also need heavy duty rubber gloves which can be bought in the studio. What else do I need to buy? What extra costs are there?
